The family of a young woman who suffered the stillbirth of her son are uniting for a musical performance and to raise money for charity.

Last year Ami Virden from Hornsby Road lost her son Joseph, and the family have decided to organise a night of music in his memory and to raise funds for The Lily Mae Foundation which supports those who have gone through a stillbirth or neonatal death.

The event which will see a mix of music performed by six different artists is also in aid of The Lincolnshire Down’s Syndrome Support Group.

Ami said: “Last July I lost my little boy, who was stillborn. I have had that personal experience and I want to help support others.”

It is with her family’s support that Ami has got through the difficult year, and now they are also joining her in singing for the charity night which will take place at Grantham College’s refectory from 7pm on Saturday, July 5.

Along with her mum and dad Angie and Dave Virden, her brother Lewis, grandad Pat Corcoran and family friend Patrick Clarke, Ami will be showcasing her vocal talents.

Tickets are £7.50 each with all proceeds going to the two charities, and are available by calling 01476 410331 or 07913 812342.
