The chair of Derby Sands is Louisa Evans, who we will be featuring in our film. We plan to do more filming with Louisa and her family very soon.
The local Sands group had planned the day which included stalls to raise money for the group to continue to run and provide beautiful memory boxes for the local hospital.
Parents wrote messages and tributes to their babies on tags which were tied to balloon and released at 2pm. This was an emotional moment for many of the parents gathered.
There was also a very good raffle with loads of prizes. There was lots of support from grand parents too who were their to remember their grand sons and daughters.
It was great to meet the team, we interviewed some of them on the day and we look forward to working more with Louisa soon.
