MESSAGE FROM 'HELP IN BEREAVEMENT' CHARITY

Thank you once again for the very generous donation to Help in Bereavement.

We have used some of the money to fund a ‘Bereavement Support Group’ for anyone who is struggling with the loss of a loved one.

This will be held at St. Mary’s Community building in St. Mary’s road opposite the old ‘prison’ building on the 4th Monday of every month, 10am to 12.

The next ones are Monday 23rd April and Monday 28th May (Bank holiday, but we will still be there).

We will have ‘A’ boards outside to direct you. It is a very welcoming and friendly group. If you would like to come or know of someone who would benefit from some support, please pass on this information.

For more details please contact Jean on 023 9236 2521.
