From Shetland to the Channel Islands many municipal buildings, hospitals, bridges and iconic landmarks are helping raise awareness of baby loss, including; the Blackpool Tower, Portsmouth Spinnaker Tower, Belfast City Hall, the Millennium Bridge at Gateshead, Cardiff City Hall and many others.

And the BT Tower in London will be joining the Wave of Light on 15 October!

Check out the map below, showing the landmarks and buildings that took part in 2017 as well as those that have signed up to support the Week in 2018.

(In order to see only 2018, please tick the box “Pink & Blue Landmarks 2018” on the left hand side of the map).

You can see some of the images from 2017 in our Facebook album.

Q: How do we let you know we are going to support this year’s week and be included in the ‘Map of Support’?
A: Complete this short form or email babyloss@sands.org.uk advising of your name, contact number, building name and address/location, and duration of support.

Q: We are unable to support this year, can we support Baby Loss Awareness Week 2019?
A: Yes of course! Just let us know by completing this short form or email babyloss@sands.org.uk advising of your name, contact number, building name and address/location, and duration of support.

Tell people about your success! Once you know when your local landmark is lighting up pink and blue make sure as many people as possible get to see it. Does the building have its own social media or website? They will probably be keen to share the news and your local media may be interested too. We’ve created a template press release that has all the correct information about Baby Loss Awareness Week, for you to customise – a quick online search should reveal your local media’s contact details.

Just one request may make the difference between a no and a yes! If more than one request goes into the same venue, who knows what the power of the masses can achieve!
Thank You! We really can’t do this without you.
