Tunbridge Wells Sands is fortunate that our fantastic supporters want to run, skydive, climb mountains, get covered in mud etc etc to raise funds for our charity. Over the years we have received numerous donations as well as the proceeds of fundraising events / challenges and our thanks go to the following supporters from the past two years:




Our day to day operations involve expenditure on Memory Boxes, maintaining the Hope Butler Suite, room hire, gardening, the support phone, training for Hospital Staff, the Memorial Service and printing but, thanks to the support mentioned above, over the past two years we have also been able to:

– Fund the purchase of a Cuddle Cot for the hospital

– Run Sibling Workshops

– Make a major financial contribution to stillbirth research projects

– Install Memorial Benches in Crowborough, Paddock Wood, Maidstone and Tonbridge Cemeteries

– Furnish a Quiet Room in the scanning department at the Hospital where bereaved parents can go without having to be moved on for the next appointment

– Fund the purchase of privacy screens in the Neonatal Unit

– Fund major repair works to the Babies’ and Children’s Memorial Garden

– Start to equip a Delivery Room at the hospital that can be used as a second Bereavement Suite

We couldn’t have done all this for Bereaved Parents without the support that we receive from other Bereaved Parents so, on behalf of the Committee, our thanks to you all. We don’t have contact details for everyone who has supported us financially so apologies to those who haven’t received a formal thank you.
