Caernarfon Castle will be illuminated in pink and blue lights from 9-15 October 2019 for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2019.
The annual awareness week, now in its 17th year, is an opportunity for bereaved parents, families and friends, to commemorate babies’ lives and break the silence around pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.
All of the buildings and landmarks turning pink and blue for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2019 will be featured on the interactive mapthe Facebook album. Anyone in Caernarfon can share their photos of Caernarfon Castle on social media with the hashtag #BLAW2019.
Clea Harmer, Chief Executive of Sands (stillbirth and neonatal death charity), said: “Baby Loss Awareness Week is a unique opportunity for parents to commemorate their babies who died. I hope bereaved families in Caernarfon seeing Caernarfon Castle lit up pink and blue will feel less isolated and alone in their grief.
“Pregnancy loss or the death of a baby is a tragedy that affects thousands of people every year. It is devastating for parents and families and it’s vital they get the bereavement support and care they need, for as long as they need it.”
