DG Sands at The Wigtown Show

We had a great day (despite the rain) at Wigtown Show on Wednesday 3rd August. Tea, coffee, home baking and face painting helped attract people to our stand where they were able to find out all about our charity. It was our first time at such an event and although it was all about raising awareness, thanks to the generosity of everyone who visited our stand, we also managed to raise £340.45 for Dumfries and Galloway Sands.

Thank you to Fran Doherty for organising the stand, Laura for the very professional face painting, our homebakers and to all the lovely people who visited the stand.

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]
