Lights of Love Service

As the end of the year approaches, Sands are offering a virtual space to remember precious babies gone too soon. Lights of Love is a virtual family friendly evening of carols, readings and music. It is a multi-faith event with contributions from faith and non-faith communities. The service will be pre-recorded for you to watch at a time that is convenient to you. It will be available on the Sands youtube channel from 7pm on the 4th December. 


Ceremony of Remembrance - Joint Service with the Lister Hospital

Thank you to everyone who took part in our Memorial Service this year whether by contributing a reading, music or watching at home. We hope that you found it to be a fitting tribute to our precious babies.
