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, is a registered charity (1172482) that supplies baby Bereavement Packs from wedding dresses donated in the UK.

In 2014, 3,564 babies were stillborn or died shortly after birth. This is 10 babies every single day that are born sleeping or sadly pass away shortly after they are born. These figures only take in to account any babies that are born after 24 weeks of pregnancy as there are no recorded figures below this gestation. In reality this figure is much higher. 

Cherished Gowns UK provides the families of these precious babies with items of clothing that they are able to be dressed in for their funeral. We currently provide 237 hospitals around the UK with stock of Cherished Gown packs that include a gown, hat, booties, blanket and a cloth nappy. We have 5 different sizes of gown and these are made in a variety of styles and colours. We also send our gown packs directly to parents who are unable to find anything to fit their precious baby on request. All of the items we provide have been lovingly made by volunteers from all over the country, and all of the gowns we provide are made from generously donated UK wedding dresses. 

Our service is provided completely free of charge to anyone that is in the sad position of needing it.

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!!  We became a Registered UK Charity on the 7th April 2017.

Cherished Gowns has always worked in conjunction with SANDS and a variety of Other Support Organisations . We also liaise closely with the NHS and Maternity departments all over the UK to ensure that the Cherished Bereavement Packs properly meet the standards of the Hospitals we donate to.

Registered Charity 1172482 Donate a wedding dress in the U.K. to make Angel gowns for angel babies

Here we have just a few of the wonderful makes our volunteers have provided.  All angel gowns are provided free of charge from a wedding dress donated in the UK.  The bereavement packs help provide a degree of comfort to parents at this tragic time, as they may dress their baby in beautiful clothes, complete with a hat, nappy, booties and a blanket to wrap them in.

Our sewing volunteers are unpaid and mostly amateur Seamstresses,  we publish our work so parents may find us, to raise awareness of #miscarriage, #stillbirth, angelbabies.   But also so those donations of money, wedding dresses and time see the care and workmanship that goes into our gowns.
