Sup­port­ing Smiles

Lancashire Life - - PLACES TO VISIT -

Two vi­tal char­i­ties were boosted by a cel­e­bra­tion night at The Fence Gate near Burn­ley when lo­cal mid­wives got to­gether for a night of din­ing and danc­ing.

Or­gan­ised by the East Lan­cashire

Royal Col­lege of Mid­wives, the night was a rous­ing success. Guests took part in a raf­fle and a silent auc­tion to raise money for two char­i­ties – Knit­ting Smiles, which pro­vides baby boxes of hand-made items for dis­ad­van­taged fam­i­lies, and CMV Ac­tion, which raises aware­ness of a common virus which can af­fect the health of un­born ba­bies.

Guest heard speak­ers dis­cuss the In­ter­na­tional Day of the Mid­wife along with per­sonal sto­ries from the char­i­ties they sup­ported. The event show­cased the con­tin­u­ing importance of mid­wifery and why it should be sup­ported.
