Just an update for anyone who passed on information about our memory boxes...
I know many people commented that their hospital had similar memory boxes or boxes from Sands/simba but can I just emphasise that our boxes are no solely for babies like others might be.
Brightest star memory boxes are for children of any age. The most important information in our memory box is the leaflet on the follow up support that we offer families after the death of their son/daughter, of any age, from any cause of death. If you have similar boxes, it would be great if you could even take our leaflets to give to families.
Some nurses are coming to our office on Monday at 4pm to collect boxes and find out more about the work brightest star does for bereaved families so they can pass this information onto other staff and families.
If anyone else wishes to come... you are all most welcome.
Please share this with anyone you think might be interested.
Our address is
Pavillion 3 - St James Business Park
81 Linwood Road
Massive thanks to the 1k people who shared our original post.
