Walk beside the snowdrops for SPRING and bereaved parents

January 26, 2023

To support bereaved parents who have ever experienced the grief of the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy, at or just after birth, University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity is calling people to come together for its annual Snowdrop Walk on Saturday 11 February 2023.

Starting at 10.30am people can write messages and tie them to a ribbon before hearing a selection of beautiful readings and poems of remembrance before walking to the ‘winter borders’ to tie our ribbon around a tree as we remember babies that have been loved and lost.

This event is free for everybody to come along. Just get your walking shoes on ready to start at 10:30am in the Drawing Room at Upton House and Country Park, Poole Rd, Upton, Poole BH17 7BJ. Refreshments will be available afterwards in the warmth of Upton House.

SPRING is a support service for anyone who has been affected by pregnancy loss, no matter how long ago. To help parents and families through the worst possible time in their lives, events like the Snowdrop Walk simply provides the Dorset community with a moment in time to remember our babies and support one another.

SPRING’s Fundraising Officer, Zoe Wood, said: “Remembering our babies is such an important part of what SPRING does. The snowdrops are beautiful and behind each one, knowing there is a loved baby to remember, makes this a walk like no other.”
