A group set up to support families suffering stillbirth or miscarriage is looking for baby models to help raise funds.

Tigerlily Trust was set up in 2011 by Val Isherwood after her baby Lily was stillborn.

It recently produced packs for local hospitals to help mothers through their grief.

To help raise funds to continue the work that Tigerlily Trust does, Photobaby are producing a 2014 Calendar, Cherubs, featuring photos of local babies and infants.

Interested parents should send photos and the baby’s date of birth to rebecca@photobaby.co.uk to enter little ones aged 0-3 years.

All proceeds from calendar sales will go to Tigerlily Trust.

The closing date for entries is August 16 and you must be available for photo sessions in August or September.

The trust is also holding a Charity Fundraising Auction later this year and is appealing for donations of pieces of artwork by artists and crafts people locally.

Services or items from local businesses would also be welcomed.

Anyone willing to donate can contact enquiries@tigerlilytrust.co.uk.

Tigerlily Trust is holding a Remembrance Celebration at the Venus and Cupid Statue in Morecambe on October 15 for International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

This will be an opportunity to meet other baby loss families and share the connection that brings us together.

They will be lighting candles and joining in the Global Wave of Light at 7pm. Everyone is welcome.
