Making sweet things happen..


Above are some pupils from 'cake-a-licious' at Lourdes Secondary School, Cardonald, Glasgow who presented Glasgow SANDS, with a cheque on Monday 19th May 2014.

The S2 students, who have won a Scottish Enterprise Award, make and sell their own cakes under the name of 'cake-a-licious' at various staff coffee mornings and events within the High School. This very enterprising group of children, lead by their inspirational teacher, Geraldine Cullen, chose Glasgow SANDS as their local charity and presented us with a cheque for £180.77. 


Receiving the cheque on behalf of Glasgow SANDS are: Anne Marie Cameron (far left) and Margaret Warnock ( far right)

We are so sorry that your baby has died.


Memory BoxIt may feel very hard to take in the reality of what has happened and to have any thoughts of what to do next. However, many parents have told us how important the memories of the short time they have with their baby are and that they have found it comforting to have reminders that they can look at and hold.

This ‘Always Loved, Never Forgotten’ memory box is given by Glasgow Sands as a way to create some memories which you can cherish.
