Annual Lily Mae Foundation golf and dinner dance raises £15,000

Sarah Mason 5th May, 2022

A MASSIVE £15,000 was raised at this year’s Lily Mae Foundation golf day and evening dinner dance.

The event – now in its 13th year and held at The Belfry – is a calendar highlight for the charity set up by Ryan and Amy Jackson following the loss of their daughter Lily Mae who was ‘born sleeping’ in 2010.

Since then the pair have campaigned to honour the memory of Lily Mae and all other babies born too poorly, too soon or sleeping.

The annual fundraising event has grown in size and popularity since its inception and has raised more than £250,000 in the past 12 years.

Each year teams of golfers unite to raise money for the charity and are joined by evening guests for a three-course dinner and dance, with a special tribute to ‘those Angel Babies gone too soon from our lives’.

This year’s golf day featured 30 teams with 120 players battling to win the prestigious event.

The team award was won by B & M Waste Management Services.

The winning individual was Wesley Hiscock also from team B & M Waste Services.

The evening featured music from Revolver and radio DJ Dan Kelly who compered the evening.

Ryan and Amy said: “It is amazing to think we only set out after losing Lily Mae in 2010 to raise £10,000 to support parents and their families who had lost a baby to stillbirth or neonatal death.

“To have held our 13th golf day and evening dinner dance shows there is still more to do to break the taboo of baby loss and to raise vital funds to support parents and their families who had lost a baby to stillbirth, neonatal death, miscarriage or medical termination.

“We would like to thank all of our sponsors, Aconveyancing, PJM Logistics, FBM Metals, The Orange Tree, Joseph Ash Galvanizing, Titleist, ABS, ACE Golf Challenge and Stealth Connections, golfers and guests who have supported this event since its inception.”
