If you are unable to attend and would like your baby to be remembered, you can make a small donation and have a hand written message of your choosing hung on one of our twelve trees at a venue of your choice. To do so fill out our Lights of Love message and donation form: https://www.uk-sands.org/get-involved/events/lights-of-love/messages

Lights of Love services are evenings of traditional carols, reading and musical performances. There will once again be Christmas trees on which to hang messages for loved ones and the opportunity at most of the venues to light a tealight in memory of your baby or loved one. There is no charge to attend the service.
