For the past 2 years we have created our very own campaign and fundraiser day and week to mark the official Children's Grief Awareness week that was formed by the Childhood Bereavement Network and Grief Encounter.
Statistics taken in 2015 showed that 100 parents died in Milton Keynes in one year, leaving dependent children. Nationally, it is estimated that 1 in 29 school children are bereaved of a parent or sibling – that is potentially 1 per school class.
We are committed to raising the awareness of Child Bereavement and the needs for children and their families when they are grieving.
Our awareness campaign during November (exact date to be confirmed while we wait on the 2 organising charities) asks participants to dress up in bright colours, wear a rainbow and shout out about supporting bereaved children.
Last year we had an amazing time and local individuals and organisations collectively raised over £3500!! https://www.harrysrainbow.co.uk/news-fullview/rainbow-week-2019
Can we beat that this year? We need your help, now more than ever to not only raise the awareness of Child bereavement but to also fundraise to ensure the longevity of our service. During the most challenging of times we have still supported children all across MK and we would love to help more children with your help and support.
