My arms ached from the weight of emptiness for the loss of my stillborn son Aaron; at Sands I found others who held me in theirs and shared a different path which they had lit with love. Thank you, Sands

Zoe Renton, Trustee, said: “Angela has demonstrated huge commitment to Sands, both as a Chair, a Trustee and through her work with Groups in Scotland. She has given so much of her time and energy to ensure decisions are made in the best interests of the organisation, keeping the needs of bereaved families and our commitment to reduce the numbers of babies that die at the forefront of her mind. She is passionate about ensuring that the voices of members and volunteers across the country are heard at all levels of the organisation.”
Angela has been nominated as part of 40 volunteers for #Sands40. Join them at Sands 40th Anniversary Conference on 17th November 2018 in Glasgow.
Sands is marking its 40th anniversary this year and we would like to say thank you for the incredible support and contribution that our dedicated volunteers make across the UK to support bereaved parents and anyone affected by the death of a baby.
We will be hosting an awards ceremony during the Sands 40th Anniversary Conference to celebrate the wide range of volunteering involvement in Sands and acknowledge 40 volunteers for their dedication and commitment.
