Story

Thank you for visiting the amazing #TeamSands-Stockport donation page, raising money in support of the Baby Memorial Garden at Mill Lane Cemetery, Stockport.

Mill Lane Cemetery is creating a new burial area for babies and an area to scatter ashes.

There is a need to create a gentle and sheltered environment for parents to wait in for their baby’s funeral service and for them to visit their baby’s place of rest. Families will benefit from having a local place to spend time to reflect on their experiences as part of their grieving journey.

#TeamSands-Stockport 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.

All the funds raised will be designated for the purpose of Stockport Sands, Mill Lane Cemetery Baby Memorial Garden Project. Once this project is fully funded and its £1,000 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.
