Last years service was a wonderful evening and provided somewhere for so many families to come together to honour and remember their angels.
This year we are hoping that it will be just as successful or even more.
Over the last 12 months we have met so many more families and have been able to support them in their loss.
Our charity always aims to help and support bereaved families but we have found that the families we have helped go on to become friends rather than acquaintances. Coming together at this very difficult time of year for bereaved families is such a special way of everyone being able to help each other. There is no one there that will not understand the struggles that people are going through.
We have all been busy making sure that everything is ready, from the baubles for the tree, the special gifts for everyone who attends and the prizes for the raffle.
We are very fortunate to work with and alongside some amazing people who give so much of their time and energy to our charity and without them we would definitely find it harder to do everything we currently do. There have been some wonderful donations made to us for raffle prizes, Beaverbrooks Jewellers staff have agreed to come along to provide refreshments for everyone and we are delighted and excited that a local singer has agreed to come along to sing for us.
We hope that you are all able to come along to the service. There will be many of us there from the charity if you need to talk to anyone about support you may need or just to have a chat to.
Whilst the evening is not predominantly to raise funds for us, any money raised from the event will enable us to continue to provide the free support and help we currently give.
Christmas can be a very difficult and lonely time for families and if we can help make the holidays a little less traumatic for them we will do.
Charlie Arthur Curtis has already made a huge impact on the face of bereavement support and we couldn't be any prouder of our special little boy.
