Untitled-1We are delighted to announce our next ball is taking place at Easterbrook Hall on Saturday the 30th April 2016.

Please come along to offer your much needed support.

Ali and Kenny Carruthers of Johnstonebridge host a highly successful charity night and raise over £4,500 for DG Sands

Ali and Kenny_1205x800Dumfries and Galloway Sands were received a cheque for £4544.44 from Ali and Kenny Carruthers from Johnstonebridge following a charity night which was held in memory of their baby daughter, Bethany who died in December 2013.

The charity night was held at Lockerbie Lorry Park on the 16th of May 2015 and the couple sold over 200 tickets for the event. Entertainment on the night included a silent auction and a huge raffle as well as music which from the wonderful band ‘Not Guilty’. A huge thanks to everyone who supported us on this night.

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.
