On Monday 26 December 2016, Alex and Sarah's world changed for ever. That was the day they started their long journey of trying to come to terms with the death of their son, Gus.
You may have received recently a letter in the post from Alex, Gus' Daddy, sharing a little of his story and asking Sands supporters to make a gift to Sands. Or you may be responding to a post on social media. Whatever the reason that has brought you here, we thank you for taking the time to find out a little about Gus and his amazing family and why they want to support Sands - read Alex's letter in full.
"I don’t know where we would be now without Sands. Not only did they provide us with a Memory Box where we keep Gus’ blanket, toy bunny and a lock of his hair, but the support they’ve provided to us through the meetings has helped us to cope together and amongst our friends, family and work colleagues too. We’ve decided to support Sands in Gus’ memory to ensure something positive comes from our loss." Alex Churcher
