We are here to support any person affected by the death of a baby. We offer one-to-one befriending, telephone support and advice as well as regular group support meetings.


We work with people in Bedfordshire and surrounding areas and all of our services are provided free of charge by local volunteers - Beds SANDS receives no funding other than by donation.

Summer Ball

We are holding a Fundraising ball on Saturday 30th June 2012 to raise funds for the planned bereavement Suite at the Cygnet Wing, Bedford Hospital.

It will be held in the beautiful marquee, within the grounds of the Mansion House, Old Warden Park, nr Biggleswade.

As well as reception drinks and a three course dinner, there will be a live disco, an acoustic guitarist/singer, an auction, a raffle, an anchored balloon ride (weather dependant) and much more.

Tickets will be £40 per head with an added incentive of a 10% reduction to those buying ten tickets for a table for a group.

If you can support this massive event in any way, please email Claire, Vanessa or Jo at bedfordshiresands@yahoo.co.uk.  We are looking for help with sourcing some of the entertainment and auction and raffle prizes.
