Raising funds is vital for any charity to enable them to offer their valuable services and support the local community, and the Children’s Bereavement Centre and Beaumond House are no exception.

Both charities offer their services free of charge to those who need it and to raise the revenue required to deliver these services we organise lots of events, campaigns, and challenges.

Whether you are taking on a challenge and raising money yourself or sponsoring someone else to do something you are doing so much more than raising pounds and pence. You are changing lives.

On behalf of both charities a heartfelt thank you for your support and if you would like to find out any more abut the work we do and how you can support us please visit our website.
