A FOOTBALL club providing support to bereaved dads is taking to the pitch in aid of Warwick Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit and Sands.
Sands United – which raises money for the stillbirth and neo-natal death charity Sands – brings together dads and other family members to play on for the babies they have lost, as well as building a support network where men can feel at ease talking about their grief.
Players also commemorate their babies’ lives by displaying their names on the kit.
And they will be holding a Charity Football Match and Family Fun Day at Radford Semele Sports & Social Club on Saturday September 7, starting at 11am. There will also be stalls, a barbecue, bar and raffle.
