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:

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.
