A MOTHER who tragically lost her son when he was just two days old has harnessed her creative skills to raise £2,010 for the hospice where he died.

Jayne Maxwell, aged 49, made an elaborately decorated quilt to raise money for the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, in North Anston.

It was auctioned at the hospice and raised £2,010.

The cause is incredibly close to Jayne’s heart as her son, Karl, who would now be 19, died at just two days old from a twisted bowel.

She said: “We didn’t get offered any counselling back then, so I want to raise money so the vital help and support can continue.”

The quilt has taken Mrs Maxwell, of Foxcroft Meadows, Maltby, four months to make and she says each panel in the quilt has a meaning.

She added: “The butterflies on the quilt represent the children’s spirits being set free in heaven.”

Sarah Champion, chief executive of Bluebell Wood, said: “We are really grateful to Jayne for making this beautiful quilt. Her commitment is incredible.”
