The national event, which aims to raise awareness of baby loss during pregnancy and the neo-natal period, took place from October 9 to October 15.

Claydon-based company Star Light Production Services chose to light up the hall again this year in a bid to show their support to the cause.

Ipswich Hospital Baby Bereavement Group, a support group organised by mums who have experienced baby loss, had made a call last week to see the county lit up and blue and pink in support.

Speaking last week, bereavement group member Laura Houlden said the support of local people and businesses is “life-changing” for those who have experienced baby loss.

Other buildings to have been lit up this year include Ipswich Town Hall, while in Clacton, bereaved mother Maria Gormley lined the seafront with coloured ribbons to mark the week.
