Details for Emma Dimond, Chris Rooke, and Isobel to be added.
I lost my daughter, Harriet, in 2006. The help and support I received through my local SANDS meetings at the time was phenomenal, especially talking with people who had experienced similar losses to mine. I have been a befriender since 2015 and want to support bereaved families through their own losses and show them that, whilst their baby will never be forgotten, there are ways of moving on and continuing with a happy future. I am a trained Befriender, providing telephone support and running our monthly Support Meetings in Margate.
We really do appreciate all the donations we are given and use these to support our considerable work across East Kent and Sands' wider work, including research. In our area we are so lucky to have the wonderful Baby Memorial Garden in Ashford with 300 name tiles, each and everyone so precious to their families. We train midwives and others and we provide cuddle cots and other equipment to our two local hospitals in Ashford and Margate.
