SPRING Christmas Remembrance Service
You are invited to join us for an uplifting service to remember SPRING’s special babies at Christmas time. Service takes place on Saturday 1st December 2018 at 3pm at St Mary’s Church, Longfleet Road, Poole BH15 2LT
SPRING was established in 1998 to provide support to parents and relatives who have experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, at, or just after birth. Over the years SPRING has evolved to help many families and friends through such devastating times.
SPRING is part of Poole Hospital Charity and overseen by a committee which includes bereaved parents and caring, committed professionals – all of whom are passionate about SPRING and matters surrounding baby loss.
SPRING provides three memorial events throughout the year. The Global Wave of Light service (part of Baby Loss Awareness week), the Christmas Service and the Snowdrop Walk are our ways of remembering our babies. We also hold a number of fundraising events periodically.
More details coming soon!
