BURY Art Museum was illuminated in pink and blue lights to mark Baby Loss Awareness Week.

Bereaved parents, families and friends commemorated their babies' lives and shared about their experiences during the annual awareness week, October 9-16.

Baby Loss Awareness Week, in its 16th year, helps to raise awareness about the issues surrounding pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.

It is also a chance to let members of the public know what charities and other supportive organisations are doing on bereavement care and support around pregnancy and baby loss.

Cllr Andrea Simpson, Bury Council's deputy leader and cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: "We hope turning civic buildings across the country pink and blue sparked conversations about baby loss and gave local bereaved parents and families an opportunity to talk about their experiences.

"Baby Loss Awareness Week is a unique opportunity for parents to commemorate their babies who died, and I hope bereaved families who saw Bury Art Museum lit up in pink and blue felt less isolated and alone in their grief."
