Service will remember lost tots

A SERVICE of remembrance for parents who have lost babies will be held at Chichester Cathedral.

People who have lost babies during pregnancy, birth or infancy are welcome to the Saying Goodbye service on Saturday, June 8, at 5.30pm.

The Chichester service, organised by the Mariposa Trust, which also offers support for people who have been through loss, is the sixth of more than 20 services being held in the UK.

Established by Zoe and Andy Clark-Coates, who suffered the loss of five babies, it aims to remember and acknowledge the lives lost or cut short. Open to people of all faiths or no faith, it is free to attend, and features music, poetry, personal stories and more.
