National Bereaved Parents Day 2021

Kim's story

Megan’s garden was created not long after my 17 year old daughter Megan died 5 days after a car accident in which she was a passenger. It is a place for family and Megan's friends to visit. It was only able to be created because of funds raised by friends, family and complete strangers who did all sorts of fundraising events. We are eternally grateful to them all.

I've made so many friends through The Compassionate Friends and feel I know our children so I thought it was only fitting that our children have a special spot in Megan's garden. Annaliese’s mum, Clare, has painted a pebble for each of our children gone too soon – so they are all remembered in Megan’s garden.

Kim, Megan's mum

Beautiful garden in memory of your precious daughter Megan.
We too lost our daughter Caitlin aged 18 as a front seat passenger in a car crash in July 2017. 💔
We are forever heartbroken and miss her so so much every single day. 💔 Xxxxx
