We know, from speaking to the children, young people and families who take part in our groups that the work we do makes a real difference their lives, but this simply wouldn’t be possible without our hard-working volunteers and the generous support from our local community.

We have put together a wish list of items and resources we need in order to keep our group programme running and our website packed with useful advice, as well as keeping our free helpline going.

So, whether you can spare a little or a lot, every penny goes towards helping and supporting bereaved children so that they can look forward to a more positive future.

Charity Christmas Quiz

Another way to support us is by buying the Charity Christmas Quiz provided by Hitchin Priory Rotary Club. This popular annual quiz has 100 questions – this year all about job titles – and has winners’ prizes of £100, £75, £50 and £25 for the first, second, third and fourth-placed entries, provides loads of enjoyment, makes an excellent stocking filler or Christmas Card insert, and costs just £1. The closing date for entries is Sunday 31 December.

Stand by me has been chosen this year as a main beneficiary of this year’s Quiz sales, so getting one for yourself, and even better, getting more for friends and family, will give you all a fun way of supporting us.
