We are proud to announce that one of our Funeral Directors, Evie Thomas-Broomfield has recently received a national award for her dedicated care and support for families struggling following the loss of a baby or young child.

Evie was nominated by the family of Baby Everley who Evie looked after, at the Mariposa Trust Awards which was in London at the Landmark Hotel. The award is recognition for both Evie and more generally the funeral profession as these awards are largely for the NHS. Evie won the Community Award. View the awards page here.

The Mariposa Trust is a charity that supports families with the trauma of loss of a child, whether that be during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy.

The parents of Baby Everley had the following to say, “Evie made us feel like Everley was safe and looked after. She made her funeral perfect and just how we wanted and she looked after us all, making sure my family had chance to say goodbye in a beautiful way in really awful circumstances. When a baby dies before they are born, your time and memories are so few these little things make a huge difference. But the biggest thing she did, she sat with us comfortably in our darkest time and was so present. I knew she was doing everything she could for us all and she made this time so much easier.” 

Well done Evie, keep up the great work that you do for our local community.
