The 50th anniversary supportive weekend is a much larger event than our usual national gathering. It is being held at a high quality hotel with an expanded programme, more peer workshops and discussions, outside speakers, commemorative elements and a sit-down dinner on the Saturday evening. We will also be commemorating this milestone in the history of the charity with a larger group of attendees from within and outside of the UK.

We are asking bereaved parents, families and others who value the work of The Compassionate Friends to consider supporting the weekend to help us to ensure that this important event continues to help all who need us. There will be many additional costs for the charity at the weekend, so any contributions are most welcome.

When you sponsor the 50th Anniversary Gathering you and your child or sibling will be featured on the Board of Sponsors displayed prominently at the Gathering and also in the programme for the weekend.

If you sponsor a syndicate room a photo of your child or sibling can be included outside the room.

Please consider remembering your loved one, as well as showing your support of TCF’s 50th Anniversary Conference through a sponsorship. Any assistance is greatly needed and hugely appreciated.
