A lasting gift for bereaved parents.

Gina Scriven of Cannington-based Memories in Glass and Glass by Gina donates a percentage of her sales to SIDS and Kids.

The event will be a way to gather more donations, and make a cheque presentation to SIDS and Kids, an organisation dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood, and supporting bereaved families.

Ms Scriven’s artistic creations include whimsical glass moulds of infant foot and handprints as a reminder of babies and children well after they’ve grown into adulthood.

She said it was especially touching to create a gift for families who were left with only the memories of their children who had died before they’d had a chance to live.

‘I love creating, I love playing with glass, but most of all I love seeing parents reconnecting and holding their baby again,’ Ms Scriven said.

Locals are invited to bring a picnic lunch to the free event and enjoy an animal petting zoo, a photo booth, craft, sporting activities, slot cars and local business displays.
