SANDS Lothians is a charity
Laura and Iain have turned to after the devastating loss of their baby girl
Jessica Margaret Houston on 16th March 2018.

Last year teamHOUSTON was put together of family and friends to help support Laura and Iain and also raise awareness and funds for the great work the charity do in providing compassionate support to families during this heartbreaking time.

Once again in 2019 Laura and Iain asked family and friends to come together and the response has been unbelievable

A number of us will be taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and we would love your support in raising awareness and funds to help this amazing charity continue to do the work they do on a daily basis.

Thank you for your support in either running or raising.
