Why Donate a wedding dress in the UK? After getting married it is traditional to keep your wedding dress for many reasons. To be made in to a christening gown for your children, for your daughter wear, to box up and safely store away as a memento of your special day. In reality many wedding dresses end up hanging in your wardrobe taking up space or in a loft for decades, hidden away never to be used again. #wrappedinlove,Donate a wedding dress UK, Family bereavement, Midwifery, midwife, child Bereavement, St evangelines hospital, maternity, rainbow babies, neonatal death, precious babies, pre-birth death, angel wings, forever dressed in love, primrose wings, marisopa trust, saying goodbye, sleeping babies, born sleeping, little gowns, neonatal Bereavement, cherished Gowns, heavenly gowns, angel gowns, Angel Babies, Cherished, baby bereavement packs, neonatal Bereaved, Heavenly gowns, Family bereavement, rainbow babies, neonatal death, precious babies, pre-birth death, angel wings, forever dressed in love, primrose wings, marisopa trust, saying goodbye, sleeping babies, born sleeping, little gowns, Bereaved parents, cherished, miscarriage, Bereavement clothes, baby Bereavement gowns, baby Bereavement clothes, still born outfits, Little baby and co, preemies Uk, the butterfly awards, Angel gowns for Angel babies, angels, baby funeral, Premature Baby Loss Burial Clothes Gowns Babies Funeral 0-1lb clothing items for a baby funeral too including baby bereavement nappies and micro baby socks 0-2lb size, angel gowns Scotland

 

 

 



Cherished Gowns UK transform these wedding dresses in to carefully crafted burial gowns for babies that are born too soon, too late or too poorly. These gowns are then donated to hospitals and parents around the UK completely free of charge.


Cherished Gowns UK was set up in October 2014 and since then we have made over 35,000 gowns from 12,000 wedding dresses. In 2016, we sent out 366 hospital boxes, which contained 9,150 complete Cherished Gown packs, and 7,320 wrap packs. We also sent 273 packs direct to parents. Our incredible volunteers also made 102,046 knitted items and 18,811 gowns!!
