KEIGHLEY people affected by the loss of a baby are being invited to attend a special service at Bradford Cathedral next weekend.

The service – at 4pm on Sunday, October 27 – is one of 20 being staged across the UK by the charity, The Mariposa Trust.

Families, couples and individuals affected by baby loss – whether during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy – are welcome to attend.

The Saying Goodbye services, first held seven years ago, coincide with Baby Loss Awareness Month.

Zoe Clark-Coates, who herself lost five babies and helped found the initiative, said: “When parents go through the devastating loss of a baby, they often feel isolated and unable to process the overwhelming grief and trauma.

“We invite anyone who has gone through – or been affected by – baby loss to join us for this special event.

“Come and join with others who have been through a similar experience in remembering all those who have gone too soon, because every baby matters!

“The services are open to people of faith or no faith, whether you have lost recently or decades ago.

“They are uplifting and moving events filled with music, poems and acts of remembrance and have been attended by countless thousands of people over the years, who have found healing and solace by attending.”
