PEOPLE are being urged to wear pink on Sunday, April 26, to show their support for Libby Mae’s Little Angels and make a donation to the cause.
The charity was started by Bromsgrove couple Charlotte and Richard Sharratt who lost their daughter at just two weeks old and Sunday – the Wear It Pink day – would have been Libby Mae’s seventh birthday.
Since then the couple have been raising cash for neo-natal units throughout the Midlands and have so far collected £350,000.
Last month they launched an ambitious appeal to raise £500,000 to provide state-of-the-art incubators for 12 hospitals across the West Midlands.
As well as people wearing pink Charlotte and Richard’s son Riley will also be doing a sponsored walk, undertaking 26 laps of Ash Drive in Catshill.
He has already raised £570 to help NHS Heroes and neonatal units.
Go to justgiving.com/fundraising/riley-s-26 to boost Riley’s coffers.
Those taking part are urged to upload their photographs to social media with the hashtag #GoPink4Libby
