A Huge Thank You to Roger Doherty & Friends After Raising Over £13K For DG Sands

image1Susan and Alison recently received a cheque for an amazing £13,343.21 from Fran and Roger Doherty and friends. This fantastic amount was raised by the group in memory of Fran and Rogers little boy Charlie who sadly was still born in 2014.

As well as setting up a Just Giving page and competing in a duathlon, the group also organised a quiz and curry night and a coffee morning. The teachers and children of Penninghame Primary also held an activity morning.

Dumfries and Galloway Sands would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in raising this amazing amount.

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]
