Chloe Gallie was recently appointed as a new committee member at the recent Guernsey Sands AGM.

Chloe will take on the role of Event Organiser helping to coordinate the annual Lights of Love service and any other memorial/fundraising events.

Chloe said: “When a few friends and family members experienced stillbirths and neonatal deaths around the same time, I felt completely useless but wanted to do so much to help with their grief. Having learned that Guernsey Sands was able to offer them the practical help and emotional support that I was not equipped to, I looked for a way to get involved as a way of thanking the charity for being there for the people I care about. With around 10 years experience of event management, I look forward to getting involved and helping out with the many events that Guernsey Sands hosts for bereaved parents and families in the island.”

Chair Rob Jones was pleased to welcome Chloe, “We would like to thank Chloe for deciding to volunteer for Guernsey Sands Group’s committee. We are very grateful for all the hard work that all our volunteers undertake on our behalf and are sure Chloe will add great value to our committee.”

At this same AGM, all existing committee members were re-appointed to their roles.
