Awards and Recognition
Cherished Gowns UK are always keen to work with other organisations, Charities and businesses. We have exhibited appropriate items at study days, conferences and exhibitions and are always looking to create more awareness around Babyloss. If you have an event that you would like us to exhibit at please use the contact form to enquire.
One of our volunteer mentors Glenys Risdale received a heart wrenching letter with a UK wedding dress donation from a bride.
Please find my wedding dress for you to transform.
I must add that this is a double sort of donation because not only did I have a still born baby girl many years ago, but my husband died 2 years ago..
We were only actually married for 2 years too.
I hope this dress causes nothing but peace for all that wear what you make
Here is what Glenys did
Glenys, a former professional Seamstress, was touched to receive this letter from the donating bride after she forwarded the picture above
OMG Glenys!!! I'm speechless! These beautiful tiny precious gowns and the rest too. It made me cry to see such perfect creations. I'm so very very happy. I know if I could have had one for my little angel I would have been a comforted and very grateful at the time.
There are not many things in life that create some joy from deep sadness, but the amazing work you do is just that Glenys. I know I will eternally remember this whole process and it will warm my heart on my darkest days.
I feel humbled and can finally start to close my own chapter of loss too.
Thank you Glenys. I mean that from the bottom of my soul.

|A Little Box of Crochet
Amanda from A Little Box of Crochet helped us by making a very generous donation to our Charity. Sadly she lost her daughter earlier this year and our volunteers were keen to help when she put out a public plea for crochet flowers that her daughter had requested to be used to decorate her coffin. Amanda and her late daughter touched us all and they are both always in our thoughts.
