With our crew busy at sea (take a look at one of the pictures taken yesterday evening on deck) today’s daily update is a focus on one of our chosen charities- Child Bereavement UK. Child Bereavement supports families when a child or baby of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement. They work tirelessly to support those who have to go through the unimaginable and their work is invaluable.
CBUK were there for Rene’s family when Rene died by suicide in 2017, and have continued to provide support and an ear to listen since then. Their mission is to esnure that high quality support is available for all, by continuing to increase their reach and fill the gaps that exist in bereavement support and training across the country.
Their website offers fantastic resources for those who may be facing bereavement or in the position where they are wanting to support those who are. The money we raise will be split between CBUK and PAPYRUS UK, and go towards ensuring a future where bereavement is supported across the board. No parent should have to go through losing a baby or child, and no child should have to go through losing a parent at a young age. However when such tragedies may present themselves, it is vital that we have charities such as CBUK to support life after bereavement.
Thank you CBUK for everything you have done and everything that you continue to do.
