Story

The trek will start in Bushy Park. After walking through your first Royal Park - Bushy Park - we'll then follow the River Thames to Richmond Park. The route takes us straight across historic parkland and beautiful green spaces before we cross the river again and head into Chelsea. Little known Brompton Cemetery is our next Royal Park before we reach the beautiful Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Continuing on through Green Park we pass the iconic Buckingham Palace and reach St James's Park, our seventh Royal Park. We make our way to historic Westminster and Victoria Tower Gardens before heading north to our ninth Royal Park, Regent's Park. With just one more Royal Park to reach we head east before crossing the river to reach our final destination Greenwich Park.

We will be walking in memory of our twins and triplets and remembering them throughout the day.

We understand the value of having a safe space to be able to communicate with someone who has been through something similar, and aim to provide a kind, caring and inclusive approach with our bereavement services. Our support is provided by those who have had first hand experience of twin or triplet loss.

As a core team of two and our brilliant volunteers, we are reliant on your donations to deliver our bereavement services and provide ongoing support to families who have experienced twin or triplet loss, at whatever stage of their bereavement journey.

Your donations will help us in many ways including:

-Delivering our monthly online support groups

-Maintaining an active and engaged online community through our Facebook group

-Offering befriending services to those who need it, at whatever stage of their journey

-Providing training and mental health support for our volunteer befrienders and online community volunteers.

You can find out more about our support services on our website and see just how important this support is.
