International Bereaved Mother's Day

International Bereaved Mother's Day

6 May 2018

All over the UK

We invite you to join us to use International Bereaved Mother's Day to fundraise for the The Compassionate Friends. Could you hold an event on or around the 6th May for us to help our charity raise much needed funds?

We try to do so much to support bereaved parents and we do it all on a very tight budget. (see our Annual Report). We would dearly love to do so much more for bereaved parents and families:- run more retreats and supportive weekends, train and support more volunteers to run support groups, expand our grief companion scheme for one-to-one support and befriending, expand our staff team to support our wonderful volunteers and much more..... But we need funds to do it and we thought that bereaved Mother's Day might be a way for us to join forces to raise more funds.

Your event doesn't have to be large or complicated......Maybe just a simple coffee morning or bake sale. Maybe a bring and share lunch, barbecue or even a small sponsored walk to get everyone out in the fresh air! The list is endless. We can send you donation boxes and information about TCF. Just email us on info@tcf.org.uk and we will send you a package and a fundraising pack.

If you have been helped by our charity, or if you know someone who has been supported by us, PLEASE help us to offer support and hope to more parents by using May 6th and INTERNATIONAL BEREAVED MOTHER'S DAY to raise awareness of child loss and raise funds for our charity.

Support our work

Each year thousands of parents suffer the loss of a son or a daughter. Please help us to support families in their time of greatest need.
