A YOUNG woman who suffered two miscarriages in a year hopes to help change the ‘taboo’ by organising a charity walk in aid of Sands.
Robyn Webb, 23, from Gosport has suffered two miscarriages within the last year and her losses, which left her feeling alone and without sufficient support, have pushed her to set up her own charity walk to raise funds for Sands.
The starlight walk will take place on October 11 at 7.15pm, starting from Gosport Lifeboat Station to Lee-on-the-Solent and back and Robyn welcomes anyone who has experienced baby loss to join her, bring a lantern and – for those who aren’t able to complete the 10K walk – light a candle.
Robyn said: ‘There’s not really a way that you get to speak to other people who have gone through it. It would be nice to know that close by, it’s actually more common than you think.
