Each year we run one or two walks to hold in mind our dearest loved ones who are no longer here with us.
Our last walk was on Saturday 5th October 2019 when a group of friends and supporters walked 12 miles across from High Barnet to Turkey Street Station.
It was a lovely day of walking and talking and over £300 was raised for bereavement support services.
Here are some pictures from our previous walks:
We believe that everyone who has lost a loved one to cancer should be able to talk freely and openly about their experiences of grief and have the right support available. It’s people like you who will help us to achieve our mission.
With your support, we can grow our specialist bereavement services and be there for everyone who needs us.
Fundraising for us can be a way to show people who are grieving that you care. If you too have lost someone to cancer, it can be a way to engage proactively with your own sense of loss and to help others like you benefit from our valuable and healing support.
