Hope Bereavement Care is holding its 11th Annual walk of Hope. The walk commemorates International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
Each year over 200 families and friends have met at Rippleside Park and walked together to honour the memory of their precious children. Although we can’t be together again this year, we want to create a safe, welcoming and supportive space for people bereaved by the death of a baby or child- walking together in memory of our children and connecting with others on the same grief journey so we are not alone.
