Grant writes, “the events included a coffee morning, Edinburgh Half Marathon, The Great Swim, Walking the Annandale Way, The Great North Run, a Grand Prize Draw, an Online Auction and a Choir Night with Anava Singers. Many thanks to everybody that contributed towards the funds raised. You are all amazing. Special thanks to the following people – Lesley-Ann Johnstone for raising 1,060 of the total raised. Anava Singers Marion Seaton for the £574 raised. Wendy Stuart Hamilton Shona Dalton Kerry-Anne Hawkins and the rest of the troops for helping out at the Coffee Morning. Granny, Lyndsay Maxwell and Ruth Allen for throwing yourselves in Lake Windermere for the Great Swim. All the Annandale Way Walkers and special thanks to Jemma Dinnell Leah Clark Belford and Morag Kell for setting our pace on the walk. To all the donators of prizes and auction items, especially Cammy Bell for the signed Gloves. You are all awesome.

The funds raised will go to help sustain the local SANDS Group and which we now have a real affinity with. I know they will be really appreciative of the funds and will put them to good use.”

Next Support Meeting

The next support group meeting is planned for

  • 7th November: 7.30pm

and we welcome anyone touched by the death of a baby to join us.

The meeting will be held at our office at 107 Irish Street Dumfries.

Many people feel that only others who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of the pain and heartbreak that they are feeling and the support group meetings allow you to connect with other bereaved parents, grandparents and others who share your pain and loss.

The support group is an informal setting and is only attended by people who themselves have lost a baby or their families. You will not be pressured to speak and sometimes it’s nice just to simply come along and listen.

If anyone would like more information about these meetings or would like to express an interest in attending then please email [email protected]
