Sands received an extremely positive response from delegates at the Royal College of Midwives conference this week. During the two day event, Sands spoke to student midwives; midwives and other health professionals, and all were full of praise for Sands' work. It was encouraging that everyone who visited the Sands exhibition stand already knew about the charity, and many people commented about the fantastic support and work carried out by the local Sands groups. More than one hundred delegates opted to sign up for the new Sands e-bulletin, so that they are kept fully informed about the charity's work.
