Music for a Summer Evening, the popular fundraiser that has helped raise over £131,000 in memory of eight-day-old Fleur Clemence, returns next month.
The event was set up by Fleur’s parents, Charlotte and Grant, following the death of their twin daughter eight years ago. It takes place in the grounds of the family’s home in Little Hallingbury and raises money for EACH, and will be on Saturday, 6 July this year.
Charlotte gave birth to Fleur and Sophia on 4 May, 2011. She and Grant knew Fleur would not live for long as a rare heart condition - hypoplastic left heart syndrome - had been detected at Charlotte’s 20-week scan.
It meant the left ventricle of Fleur’s heart was severely underdeveloped and her aorta too small to pump blood around her body effectively.
The family went home for their precious few days together and EACH staff visited to help with care and memory-making.
Although our fundraising staff are now organising the event, it will continue to take place at the home of Charlotte, who works in interior design, and Grant, in insurance, and who are also parents to Nancy Victoria.
Doors to the grounds of Little Hallingbury Place, in Wrights Green Lane, will open at 6pm, with entertainment getting under way from 7pm. Tickets are £15 for adults and £10 for those aged 12 and under, and available at www.each.org.uk/musicforasummerevening.
