About the Founders
Zoe and Andy Clark-Coates founded the charity the Mariposa Trust, of which Saying Goodbye is the primary division. As a couple they had personally gone through the experience of baby loss five times, and as such had seen what was missing in the support sector, and wanted to launch an organisation to meet this need.Read Zoe’s Story
