A FAMILY fun day is returning to Flintshire this summer in support of twins who were born three months prematurely. 

Last August, the Boot and Ship Inn, Bagillt held its first 'All For Love' event to raise money for Alder Hey to thank them for the care they gave to a local lad named Reggie. 

The 2022 event was organised by Georgia Hughes, who this year alongside Gemma Jones is aiming to make it bigger and better for a very worthy cause. 

This year, All for Love will be raising money for the specialist baby unit at Glan Clwyd following on from the support they showed to a couple from Holywell with premature twins. 

Leanne Quigley gave birth to twins Harley and Hudson in January, three and a half months before their due date. Both Leanne and her partner Sophie Jones have been waiting and hoping while the boys have been through a number of treatments. 

The twins were born weighing less than 2lbs and were urgently put into incubators. They spent over three months in hospital at both Glan Clwyd and Birmingham Hospital where they were treated for bleeds on the brain, holes in their hearts, and lumbar punctures.

Shortly before being discharged in April, Harley and Hudson were diagnosed with Metabolic Bone Disease and Chronic Lung Disease, which require them to have 24-hour oxygen support. 

The pair are now five months old and are 'thriving' at home. 

The All for Love event, which has a 'perfect' name for supporting Leanne, Sophie, and the twins, will take place on August 27 from 2pm till late.

There will be live music, food and drink, kids' entertainment, raffles and much more, with free entry to the event. 

Event organiser Georgia, who runs the events alongside her dad, Shane Williams, said: "My dad Shane and I host the charitable fun day at the pub every year. 

"Last year, it was decided that each year we would try and stem our focus to helping people who have helped others, we particularly wanted to try to keep it within the area each year. 

"It just so happened that Sophie and Leanne are very close friends and it seemed like the perfect cause.

"Gemma who is now also on board assisting us wanted to help her sister Sophie and her partner Leanne in many ways.

"Leanne and Sophie along with Hudson and Harley have shown admiral strength and courage and we hope the day is full of joy, support, celebrations and fun for them in particular.

"Any money raised is a bonus, a well-appreciated and needed bonus so that other families are provided with the same care and compassion that Sophie, Leanne and the boys were."

Gemma added: "Our event name from last year holds perfectly this year after friends of ours have received impeccable care for their premature baby boys.

"We endeavour to base this event on giving back to wonderful people and after raising over 5k last year for Alder Hey on behalf of Reggie, we are back and ready to smash that target for some more incredible human beings."
