The Norwich Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society (SANDS) Group and the chaplaincy for the NNUH will be holding a picnic at Old Catton Recreation Ground, Church Street, Old Catton on Sunday 24th of June from 2pm-4pm.
This picnic is a time when parents and families can come together for mutual support and comfort as they remember the babies that they have lost. Everyone who has experience of baby loss is most welcome. An Act of Thanksgiving will take place at 3pm followed by a release of balloons. Please bring your own picnic, drinks will be provided.
Sally Spears of Norwich SANDS said: As a bereaved parent myself I find that a service of this kind not only recognises that my baby had a life and is still remembered, but also gives me a chance to meet other families who have been in the same situation.
