In light of the coronavirus pandemic, we have taken the decision to postpone our 2020 Gala Ball. More information will be available as soon as possible.
It is our intention to again raise funds for Grief Encounter.
Grief Encounter supports bereaved children and their families to help alleviate the pain caused by the death of someone close. 1 in 29 children in the UK under the age of 16 will suffer the death of a parent. Rebuilding a new life after the death of a loved one is hard for everyone, but especially for children and young people. Once the shock and trauma of a life changing event such as bereavement has been managed, finding a way to move forward must begin. Children have an overwhelming sense of confusion, fear and anxiety, alongside their grief, which must be cared for in order for them to continue into adulthood with a sense of confidence and long lasting happiness.
