Charity Carwash Supports Family’s Cuddle Cots Bid

Staff at family-owned funeral directors G.Wathall & Son have raised £270 with a charity carwash to raise money for a local family’s bid to buy specialist equipment for Royal Derby Hospital.

The Saturday morning event at Macklin Street was in aid of Derby mum Kerry Stanley’s efforts to buy a cuddle cot for the hospital.

G Wathall & Son handled the funeral of her stillborn daughter Autumn Amelia.  They pledged their support for the family to buy another cot for the hospital which will help other bereaved parents to have much needed time to say their goodbyes.

Helen Wathall, Managing Director of G Wathall & Son said: “We have kept in touch with the family and wanted to help them to buy another of the cuddle cots. 

“We know through our own bereavement service just how much of a difference something like this can make so we were of course very happy to help in any way we could.”
