Rally for Rhys Bittersweet High Tea

Our 2yo son Rhys James Hodgetts loved to laugh and dance with his big sister Amalie. He loved watching Mr Bean and dressing up. He loved his toy monkey Eee Eee and he loved his Mum, Dad and Amalie with his whole heart.

On 22nd August 2016, Rhysy's life ended. He suffered a febrile convulsion in his sleep and his beautiful life was tragically cut short.

Rhys's Family, together with Lisa Bird and the private Facebook group Bittersweet Parents wish to raise funds to create a space for Bereaved Siblings to go, to reflect and remember their siblings lost so unfairly and far too soon.

We are in planning for a High Tea to raise funds. We are so grateful for any additional support leading up to the event. 100% of funds raised will go towards our vision of a beautiful place for siblings to grieve and to meet other siblings travelling the same journey.
