I’m sure by now most people who follow us have had our announcement today but for those that haven’t here it is in brief….

Through our partnership with Earl Mountbatten Hospice we are proud and privileged to announce the latest development to children’s services here on the island. We are finally getting a dedicated area to house all these vital and unfortunately often used, services. From respite care to bereavement counselling and so much more the redeveloped Oak House will be a testament to the effort and generosity of you all.

We have pledged £300k towards the overall £1.5m needed and we are positive we can achieve it with your continued support.

Tomorrow is the fourth anniversary of your passing Sophs and whilst every minute has felt like a year it has also passed by in a blur. You are always in our hearts and we shall never find a true peace till we are with you again.

In a fitting tribute to your love of cakes and shopping we are kicking off the fundraising with the opening of our Christmas shop tomorrow morning at 0930 where there will also be a cake sale run by two of Sophies closest friends.
If you are in Newport please pop by and, if you haven’t already, then get your Christmas shopping started.

We take our first steps on the last part of our journey and although much of it has been under a dark cloud the support and kindness that everyone has shown us has helped light the way.

Our eternal thanks and as always we hope we make you proud Sophs.

Aaron, Gemma & Jack
