On the darkest of nights,  the stars shine brightest.  

Walk 6km with us this winter for a loved one who shines brightly forever in your heart. Like starlight itself,  the love for our babies is endless,  and together we will walk through the darkness and find the light.  


Walk a Starlight  Walk  on your own or with a loved one.  Stroll through the countryside, march through the town or simply let your feet lead the way as you walk 6km for Sands with your lantern,  shining a light of hope for all those bereaved families in need of support.
