We are fundraising to bring a SiMBA Tree of Tranquillity to Dumfries and Galloway. We want to make this a very special place for families to visit, so in addition to the cost of fundraising for a tree and plaque we are also fundraising for a beautiful bespoke bench.


The SiMBA Tree of Tranquillity is a stunning hand crafted, life sized copper sculpture which has been created in response to the needs of parents. The Tree design is unique to SiMBA, and each individual leaf can be engraved with a personal message to honour a baby. Its aim is to offer bereaved parents the opportunity to honour their baby in a simple, quiet way and will effectively grow as leaves are added.

The Tree of Tranquillity is not just for the newly bereaved but also parents who sadly lost their baby years ago and were perhaps provided with little or no recognition of their babys existence. The Tree will provide the means to express a private and public declaration in memory of the lost hopes and dreams for the baby. It is a beautiful symbol of remembrance


We would like to thank Andrew Fenner for making our Tree of Tranquillity video and the "D&G Baby Loss Awareness Tree Committee"
