For many families that have experienced baby loss, the count down to this time of year can be especially difficult. While nothing will ever stop this being an incredibly difficult time for any bereaved parent, or anyone who has been affected by baby loss, sometimes the act of doing something memory can help enormously. Joining together with others, sharing a common unspoken bond, whether in person or virtually can be incredibly positive and helpful.
When we can find ourselves caught up in the inevitable hustle and bustle, pausing to reflect and writing a few words in memory can seem to really help heal.
We have created Winter Wishes for you to do just that, to remember your baby or babies and name stars to shine in the Winter Wishes sky. Not only will this enable you to remember your baby, but will enable us to support parents who will sadly need our support, our memory boxes, our helpline over the winter and in to 2019.
In our 40th year we rely more than ever on the kindness and dedication of people that donate, fundraise and remember us in their Wills. These gifts of support literally save lives.
Every single penny that our Winter Wishes raises this year will help to support people affected by baby loss through our support services including our free helpline and bereavement support app, and our Sands Groups providing support in the community right across the UK. Thank you!
