Isabella Rose Foundation
Isabella Rose Foundation was formed in 2011 in memory of our angel Isabella Rose Parr, a beautiful little girl who was born asleep at 31 weeks on the 16th October 2011.
This has been devastating time for her family especially for her parents Geoff Parr and Amanda Pope. The love and support we have all received from family members and friends has been overwhelming and the family decided that they would like to do something in Isabella’s memory.
It was decided to set up this Foundation to help other people who have experienced not only the tragedy of a stillborn baby but also families who have premature births. The Isabella Rose Team will attempt to do this by raising much needed funds through various fundraising events and by taking part in different sporting challenges. By doing this we will attempt to gain sponsorship.
Geoff and Amanda have now selected three organisations who they want to benefit from all the proceeds raised. The three organisations are: The Whiston Hospital Maternity Bereavement Fund, Bliss the premature baby Charity & Tommy’s Baby Charity.”

Having worked within the industry for large kitchen and Home improvement companies, I know where they cut corners, where they bump up the costs and basically where they are lacking. I lnow we can supply a better product with higher quality installation and still save our customers money.
