A TRIBUTE night is being held to raise money in memory of young mum to be Michelle Bore.
Michelle was just 23 when she died at Ipswich Hospital last September and despite desperate attempts to save her, her unborn baby Katie Louise also died.
In November her devastated family paid tribute in the Evening Star to Michelle, who they described as "just amazing".
Following the article, her grieving boyfriend Rodney Sewell and father of Katie Louise, launched himself into organising the tribute night to raise money for the maternity unit who tried so hard to save the pair.
