Lisa’s Stars was set up in the Autumn of 2010 to make a difference to those who are unfortunate enough to lose a child prematurely. Our Founder is a lady who has sadly experienced this and felt something was massively missing from the aftercare of those babies and their parents.
Lisa’s Stars initially started out as a way to support her local hospital, and her aim was to supply them with tiny blankets, hats and angelwraps so that any baby born too early would be kept warm and wrapped in love. Within 3 days of starting the group on facebook, Lisa’s Stars had a website, a forum to give support to families and nearly a thousand members, not to mention an army of ladies loving knitting and sewing a mountain of angel clothes.
We came to realise that the support for her vision and the need for an organisation like hers extended far beyond the need for blankets and hats, and needed to reach more than just the local hospital.
Our aim is to not only supply her local hospital with our knitwear but to spread them to as many hospitals as we can. Our dream is to create memory boxes for those baby’s and their families so they have their treasured baby’s keepsakes to keep for all time.
Even if you are unable to donate or knit for us please spread the message on to your friends and family and help us reach as many people as possible.
If you’ve been through or are going through something similar you can find help and support if you look in our link section there are lots of organisations who can offer advice and guidance at such a heartbreaking time.
from everyone at Lisa’s Stars
