SPRING’s Wave of Light Event
15 October 2020
Bereaved parents, families and friends came together in Poole Park to remember their special babies and to mark the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week. It was a beautiful occasion as families remembered their precious babies and wrote messages attached to lanterns containing candles, which were then placed around the oak tree by the War Memorial to create a wave of light. The evening event also included readings and music. Baby Loss Awareness Week takes place every year from 9-15 October. Throughout the week bereaved parents, family members and friends commemorate the all-too-brief lives of their babies, knowing that thousands of other families in the world are doing the same things. The week also provides the opportunity to raise awareness of baby loss.
SPRING’s Christmas Remembrance Event
A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas Event at St Mary’s Church on Saturday 30 November.
Beautiful readings were read out from bereaved parents and midwives alongside songs and music performed by various guests, which made this event so very special. At the end of the service, children and adults were invited to sing along with some Christmas tunes, followed by tea, coffee and plenty of cake.
The loss of a baby touches so many people and we hope everyone who attended this beautiful remembrance event were able to take what they needed from it when remembering their lost little ones.
2020 service – details to be announced.
