The Maternity Service annual Service of Remembrance for the families and friends of babies and young children who have died during pregnancy, soon after birth, or when very young, will take place at 3.00pm on Sunday, 12th October 2014.

West London Sands seeks volunteer befrienders:

Sands is seeking volunteer Befrienders in the West London area. 17 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth every day in the UK and the organisation is keen to improve its help for bereaved parents. If you would like to know more, please contact Lynn Lacey at lynnlacey10@gmail.com

 

The Sand Rose Project:

Sand Rose is not connected to Sands/WLS but has a similar name by coincidence. This charity has 3 cottages with beautiful peaceful gardens in Cornwall where families affected by any bereavement can stay for free. They have a website at www.sandrose.org.uk

They offer one or two week breaks in Cornwall and they can also offer short breaks if needed.

 

The Sand Rose Project works through a nomination process. All requests for a break must be supported by a nominee. WLS as an organisation can nominate parents or families, so if you feel that anyone you know would benefit from a break we could nominate them. The charity are very clear to say that it’s not a ‘holiday’ but a peaceful break.

 

They usually book 3 – 6 months in advance.

 

Subsidised travel costs are available upon request.

 

If/when you have anyone in mind and if you have further questions, please feel free to call

0845 6076357 Office hours, Monday and Wednesday 9am – 3pm
