Church's PS2,000 for that last cuddle.

MEMBERS of a Huddersfield church raised PS2,000 to help parents who suffer the tragedy of stillbirth.

Quarmby Spiritualist Church used the money to buy a 'cuddle cot', a refrigerated cot which allows bereaved parents to spend time with their stillborn babies. The cot has been donated to Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax.

The money was raised by Margaret Coop, a healer at the church, who completed a 20-mile walk on the Pennine Way.

Margaret was inspired to launch fundraising for the cot after hearing a mum speaking about her stillborn baby on national radio. Margaret said she believed the spirit of a baby was there on conception.

The cot was presented to bereavement midwife Sandra Pinder at the church annual meeting.

Church members prayed that the cot would never be needed.
