Dumfries and Galloway Sands Family Picnic and Balloon Release June is Sands Awareness Month. balloonsJoin us at Dock Park on Sunday 14th June at 1pm. Bring along a picnic and enjoy some time in the park before our balloon release at 2pm. There will also be face painting and games for the kids. We are hoping that we will be joined by Maggie Scorer and her dog, Oscar.  Maggie is cycling 5000 miles round the coast of Britain with her dog to raise funds and awareness for Sands and is expected to be passing through Dumfries on the day.  Please come along and cheer her on.
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]
