Luna's Lodge Purchase
Since the charity began, Luna's Lodge has been our ultimate goal.
Our vision is to create the perfect safe haven retreat, combining the luxury of a hotel with the privacy of a secluded log cabin. Our aim is for the lodge to bring comfort and an escape to parents at their lowest, offering them breathing space between themselves and the outside world as they adjust to their new reality.
During the last 5 years of our fundraising journey, we have been determined for our dream to come to fruition. We are over the moon to share with you that we are now in the very early stages of planning and designing how this very special place will look and feel!
We envisage for Luna's Lodge to be a three bedroom, two bathroom, open plan cabin encompassing:
A blissful master bedroom with an en-suite bath and luxurious bedding
A deluxe double bedroom and a twin bedroom with a shared shower room including a rainfall shower
Robes, slippers and indulgent bathroom products
A large comfy sofa with fluffy blankets to nestle into
In-cabin entertainment for movie marathons
Open plan fully functioning kitchen with a coffee machine and utensils
Luxury food hamper on arrival containing all neccessities
Private hot tub and outdoor fire pit to enjoy the peaceful outdoors
Large windows to let in lots of light and to maximise the impact of the beautiful views
Reading and reflection nook for journaling, reading or flicking through magazines
Outdoor dining space for alfresco meals and drinks
Sibling friendly; bed guard, highchair, stool, travel cot, towels, child friendly products, safety gate
Dog friendly additions; cosy bed, bowls, towels, blankets, treats
Lots of personal touches to ensure each stay is tailored to each family
Not only will it be a getaway for grieving parents, but also a sanctuary for anxious parents to find solace during pregnancy after loss. An escape from their overwhelming worries, thoughts and feelings as we start to offer 'Babymoon Breaks' as an additional service to our Story Raine Project.
We are expanding our services into the Royal Cornwall Hospital in 2024 to reach even more parents who need our practical and emotional support. This will mean that we will be able to help all of the parents in Cornwall who lose a baby between 24 weeks gestation through to 28 days neonate in 2024! The dream of Luna's Lodge is finally within our reach, but we need your help!
We are therefore launching this special appeal to secure the final £100K in order to procure the lodge, the land, the furnishings and finishing touches. We are currently working hard in the meantime to identify the most suitable location for it in Cornwall; the county where Luna was born.
Thank you to every single person who has been on this journey with us, who has followed our story from the beginning and to those who have just joined us for the next exciting chapter!
