East Kent Clay Shooters Support Abigale’s Footsteps
Abigale’s Footsteps are a baby loss charity providing support and counselling for bereaved parents and families as well as specialist bereavement training for midwives and healthcare professionals.
Since 2010, they have worked to improve the way bereaved parents are cared for by hospitals and to better educate midwives on how to care for grieving parents. Sadly, stillbirths and neo-natal deaths occur daily, yet many hospitals are not equipped to deal with the parental care required, they have inadequate facilities and their staff receive little to no bereavement training.
By working with medical professionals to understand the issues and seek solutions the charity has helped many families. One of its greatest contributions as a charity has been the creation and funding of the Abi cooling cot which allows parents valuable time to spend with their baby before saying goodbye. These cots are distributed UK wide wherever the need and as funding allows.
East Kent’s Masonic Clay Shooting section are supporting this and several other charities as their way of combining taking part in their chosen sport, and helping others while enjoying the essence of our masonic teachings. In doing so the members would like to thank all of the guests from other provinces that have visited to take part in East Kent’s events during 2021 and we look forward to seeing you all once more in 2022.
