Volunteer and Get Involved
The Rosie Crane Trust is dependent totally upon donations and the commitment of our volunteers and supporters in raising funds or giving of their time to the work of the Trust. These individual efforts enable us to provide the vital support and reassurance that bereaved parents need and deserve.
There are a number of ways in which your valuable time and skills could help:
- Acting as a volunteer for the Listening Ear service or at the Drop-in Centre
- Giving your expertise to the Trust in key areas such as marketing or fund-raising
- Assisting in the organisation of Trust events or giving practical help in their operation
- Organising your own fundraising event - e.g. a local coffee morning
Please contact us by email or call 01460 55120 to find out more about volunteering with the Rosie Crane Trust.
Fundraising and Events
We simply would not be here for the bereaved parents who need us, if it were not for those numerous people who generously support the Trust each year. We are very appreciative of the extraordinary efforts supporters go to when fundraising for us.
Recent events include:
- Sponsored Walks
- Cascade of Coffee Mornings
- Tribute Band Music Nights
- Auction of Promises
- Therapy Evenings
- Sponsored Sky Dive
A selection of images from our past events can be viewed in our Photo Gallery.
If you would like to get involved in one of our events, run your own event, or have an idea for a fundraising activity, please email us or telephone 01460 55120.
The support that we receive from local communities and local businesses is vital in helping us provide the services that bereaved parents need and deserve. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about how to become a corporate supporter of the Rosie Crane Trust.
Sharing your Experiences
Many bereaved parents find it helpful to share their experiences with others and to hear from parents in similar positions to themselves. As part of this process, we are building a database of stories, poetry and prose which can be viewed at our Poetry & Prose page. Please send or email any meaningful poems or prose that have helped you or others through the grieving process.
