Each year in December, we hold Lights of Love services in churches across the country so that families can come to remember their babies at a non–denominational service.  During the service parents and families can light a tea light in memory of their baby and write a message to hang on a Christmas tree if they want to. The date and venues for each year’s Lights of Love services will be announced on the website here, each autumn. There will also be information about how to have a message card placed on the tree if you can’t come.

This year a wide range of Sands Christmas cards are available from Charity Cards Online.

The Sands shop sells support booklets and resources, Sands merchandise as well as resources for health professionals working with and supporting bereaved families.

This Christmas why not do your shopping via Give as you Live at over 4,000(!)  top online retailers and raise a donation for Sands (and the best bit is it won’t cost you a penny extra!).
