A well-known York firm steps in to sponsor the Hippodrome Ball

A WELL KNOWN York company is sponsoring a benefit ball to raise funds for a brand new baby bereavement suite at York Hospital.

Independent jewelry store Bradley’s Jewelers York recognizes the importance of Baby Loss Awareness Week (October 9-15) by sponsoring Olivia’s Dream Charity Ball and donating special fine jewelry designs for her next draw.

The ball at York Racecourse on Saturday 19th November raises vital funds for the York and Scarborough Hospitals charity, as well as for the York Hospital Maternity Baby Bereavement Suite.

Bradley’s is donating a one-carat lab-grown diamond solitaire ring in platinum from the York Rose collection (MSRP £5,500), which will be among the raffle prizes. On the night, Kay Bradley will also present every mother who has lost a baby with a silver Twinkle Toes charm bracelet (RRP £50) as a symbol of remembrance and hope. All will be invited to visit Bradley’s Jewelers on Low Petergate to have their bracelet engraved with a special name or date in memory of their baby.

Kay Bradley, owner of Bradley’s, said, “Twinkle Toes is one of my most personal collections to date, as it is inspired by my son Rupert and his medical needs. I created the Twinkle Toes charm as a non-profit piece to inspire moms, dads, and caregivers, and hope her sentiment resonates with Olivia’s Charity Ball attendees. All in all, I just want to give something back to all the parents who have suffered such a terrible loss and support a cause important to the local community.

Olivia’s Dream Charity Ball was created by Donna and Matthew Bailey in memory of their daughter Olivia Tina Bailey, who passed away in June.

As the press reported earlier this yearDonna, Deputy Headmaster at Ryedale School, grew up in Beadlam, near Helmsley and Matthew, 30, is a freelance builder from Acomb in York who works with his father in the family business.

The couple now live in Thirsk and hosted a charity ball to raise money to help fund the development of a brand new baby bereavement suite at York Hospital.

The couple had previously established a relationship with Bradley’s Jewelers York by purchasing an engagement ring, which was engraved with Olivia’s name in her memory.

Donna said: “Matthew and I were thrilled when Kay offered to sponsor Olivia’s Dream Charity Ball. It was already a special moment, as we were choosing an engagement ring, which Kay beautifully engraved with our daughter’s name. Kay has such attention to detail and truly takes the best care of her customers. It’s amazing to work with Bradley’s, a local family business, and their generosity will help us raise awareness about the loss of a baby and hopefully raise lots of money for Bereavement Suite at York Hospital. .

The event will be an opportunity for Bradley’s Jewelers York to officially launch its Twinkle Toes collection and highlight its growing fine jewelry offering, The York Rose Collection, which includes natural and lab-grown diamond creations.

Kay said: “Baby Loss Awareness Week is an important time to reflect on the grief and loneliness that can come with the loss of a child. Its Alliance members, like the Miscarriage Association, do vital work providing support and guidance. Sponsoring Olivia’s Dream Charity Ball is our small way of giving back to a much larger network that helps grieving families.

The deadline to purchase tickets for Olivia’s Dream Charity Ball is October 30. More information can be found here: oliviasdreamcharityball.co.uk
