Our annual Lights of Love services are held in December at venues across the UK. The services are family friendly evenings of traditional carols, reading and musical performances. All services are free to attend, there is no need to book and you do not need a ticket.

Lights of Love events are run by our brilliant volunteers and we rely on their goodwill and support to hold services across the UK. This does mean that in some areas there may not be a service close to you. If you're unable to attend, you can still leave a message and make a donation in memory of your baby on our Lights of Love Christmas Tree.

You can also get in touch with you local Sands Group, who will be able to help with Christmas events in their area.

If you would like to know more, email Sands Bereavement Support and Awareness Specialist, Erica Stewart, at erica.stewart@sands.org.uk.
