Halifax Minster will be playing its part in Baby Loss Awarness Week (October 9-15) to help bereaved parents and families.

Gaynor Thompson, whose daughter Kallipateira was stillborn at 38 weeks of pregnancy, says she was determined for Halifax to truly acknowledge Baby Loss Awareness Week in honour of her daughter and all the babies that have died and their parents.

With the help of Halifax Minster, Gaynor has arranged that throughout the week bereaved parents, their families and friends will be able to remember the lives of babies lost.

The Minster will be open every day between 10am and 4pm to all who need a quiet space to remember or to light a candle.

On October 15, from 7pm, the Minster will be joining in the worldwide Wave of Light commemorations. Everyone is welcome.
