Remembering Baby Tommy Hollis
Family lay flowers on first anniversary of tragic accident that took the life of their son
It was a tragic event that no one in Chiswick will ever forget. Now one year on the parents of baby Tommy, Kate and Chris Hollis, were joined by family and friends as they laid flowers for their son outside Chiswick Town Hall.
Wednesday 23rd February marks the anniversary of day Tommy was hit by a lamppost. He died two days later in hospital. The following day, 26th February, would have been Tommy's first birthday.
"We welcome anyone to lay flowers for Tommy outside the Town Hall," Kate told ChiswickW4.com. "The council has agreed to leave them there for a week and we have left some gift aid envelopes on the table in the entrance hall to the Town Hall for donations to our charity."
Founded as a lasting memorial to their son, The Tommy Hollis Children's Fund has raised over £45,000 to date.
Kate and Chris Hollis have requested a small playground on Turnham Green as a permanent memorial "as we would like something 'alive' to remember Tommy by," says Kate.
