EVERY year on October 15, people all across the UK come together to light a candle in memory of babies who died at birth as part of baby loss awareness week.

This year, a woman from Rhyl who has endured three miscarriages, has helped organise a ‘Wave of Light’ event in the town to raise awareness of the matter.

Lisa Richardson recently collected more than £1500 for the Miscarriage Association following a five mile walk between Foryd Bridge in Rhyl and Prestatyn Golf Club.

Speaking on her latest plan to raise awareness of baby loss, she said: “ I strongly believe that people need to speak out as it’s such a taboo subject.

“Once I saw that our own town and county council were planning to light up the sky tower for baby loss awareness week, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to join together as a community and light our candles for those babies we remember.”

Having had the go-ahead from Denbighshire County Council to arrange the event, guests will meet up on the beach side of the sky tower on Tuesday October 15 to light their candles.

Lisa added: “We are asking that guests please keep safe with candles as it will be their responsibility to do so. They can even bring battery operated ones or use their phone torch if they need to. This is in memory of those angel babies so I hope we can help spread the word!”

The event will start at 6.45pm.
