Wings of love at Kil­mory

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

BUT­TER­FLIES will be re­leased in Lochgilp­head to remember chil­dren and ba­bies who have died.

The event is hosted by Simp­son’s Mem­ory Box Ap­peal (SiMBA) and will take place to­mor­row (Satur­day Septem­ber 2) in Kil­mory Cas­tle gar­dens.

Fol­low­ing the event there will be a buf­fet at the Stag Ho­tel on Ar­gyll Street, Lochgilp­head.

High­land am­bas­sador for the char­ity Su­san Simp­son said the but­ter­fly re­lease was a poignant way to remember ba­bies and chil­dren who are no longer here.

Su­san said: ‘As High­land am­bas­sador, I’m hon­oured to be join­ing the team and the fam­i­lies on their spe­cial day.

‘Th­ese events are so beau­ti­fully poignant for be­reaved fam­i­lies, giv­ing par­ents, grand­par­ents, sib­lings and friends the chance to come to­gether in mu­tual sup­port and un­der­stand­ing.

‘As the but­ter­flies take to the wing they carry with them the love and care of ev­ery fam­ily mem­ber re­leas­ing and they are such a lovely way to hon­our the mem­ory of the chil­dren we could not watch grow up.’
