The Butterfly Awards 2015

On Friday 9th October Ruth and Graham (Jessica’s parents) travelled to The Bank House Hotel near Malvern in Worcester, this is the third year that TJSF have sponsored an award and the second to be shortlisted for UK Support Organisation. The Butterfly Awards have been created by two lovely ladies called Mel Scott (Towards Tomorrow Together, Finley’s Footprints) and Jade Deverill (Healthcare and Babyloss Services Ltd) who aim to honour and celebrate survivors and champions of babyloss. They include several categories every year where you can nominate individuals and/or organisations, these are then shortlisted and people are invited to vote for their favourite. It’s the results from these votes and also the judges that decides who the winner is.

The evening itself is an amazingly, inspirational evening where hundreds of bereaved parents, friends, families and also organisations come together to raise awareness of one thing – Babyloss. The categories, sponsors and winner are listed below – you can click on their names to be forwarded to their website.
