Story

Thanks for visiting the amazing #TeamSands-Berkshire team's fundraising page raising money in support of the Berkshire Sands Memorial Tree at Ray Mill Island in Maidenhead.

Berkshire Sands have fundraised to have a Memorial Tree sited at Ray Mill Island, in Maidenhead, where parents and families can go to remember their babies. There is currently no baby loss memorial like this project within Berkshire. The tree is sculpted from steel and bereaved families will be able to have their babies names engraved onto leaves which can be attached, as a lasting memory. Berkshire Sands will also use the space as a place to hold local events, such as Rainbow picnics and Memorial services.

#TeamSands-Berkshire are absolutely committed to raising the money needed for this really important project. You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your kind donation, however small, can really help and will make such a difference to families, creating a calm, respectful space to remember their babies in peace. Thank you so much.

Once you have made your kind donation and should you like to order a leaf for the memorial tree please contact berkshiresandstree@gmail.com

All the funds raised will be designated for the purpose of Berkshire Sands Memorial Tree Project, engraved memorial leaves and general upkeep of the tree. . Once this project is fully funded and its £7,500 target reached, any excess will be spent where the need is greatest, helping Sands to continue to deliver its vital services to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, to improve the bereavement care received by parents and families, and to promote research to reduce the number of babies dying.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
