Cwtch of Comfort was set up last year, to provide blankets and quilts to add to the bereavement boxes distributed by the charity 2 wish upon a star.
These boxes are placed in A&E departments across South Wales, and now in the Children’s Hospital of Wales, and are given to suddenly bereaved parents. A blanket or quilt is included in each box, for parents to be able to wrap their child in something that doesn’t belong to the hospital, and has been made with love by a volunteer. These blankets bring untold comfort to the parents who receive them at a time of great sorrow.
We’re looking forward to sharing patterns, ideas, events and stories with you.
