Violets in Bloom is a local charity born out of a family’s tragic loss. Violet Mornington was a bubbly beautiful little 5 year old girl who had just finished her first year at St Stephen’s School in Fradley – but she lost her life to a rare blood disorder in 2013. Her loss has left a huge hole in her parent’s lives, but they turned their grief into something positive to help all parents who have lost their own little angels.
Since Violet passed away, friends, family and the local community have rallied together to raise both funds and awareness of HLH (Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis) the condition that took her life, and have raised over £20,000 for the Histio Research Trust and Birmingham Childrens’ Hospital.
Violets in Bloom has begun raising funds to build a unique, magical memorial garden for children within the grounds of Lichfield and District Crematorium in Fradley to provide the opportunity for parents to place a memorial, seek solace and connect with their child.
Violets in Bloom is a registered charity, number 115816. Read More.
