Manx mother wins inspirational award

The co-founder of an Island charity which supports bereaved parents has won an award for her work.

Victoria Kissack set up Tabitha's Trust in May last year after her daughter Tabitha died four hours after birth from a congenital condition in 2012.

She also lost another little girl Martha last year.

The charity provides memory boxes to the Jane, clothing for very small babies and advice and support groups for parents.

Victoria was shortlisted for a Butterfly Award, an annual UK ceremony to recognise people who've lost babies.

She says winning the Inspirational Mother of the Year 2014 category was a complete surprise, and means a great deal to her family.
