Another proud moment for D&G Sands. We are so pleased to significantly support bereavement services within the Women and Children’s Health Department at the new D&GRI. It’s thanks to the fantastic fundraising in D&G that has allowed us to do this.

We handed over two cheques for £8,000 each to Phil Jones, Chairman of NHS D&G to support the provision of Bereavement facilities and the development and upkeep of the Sands Memorial Garden sited within the Women and Children’s unit.

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]
