REUBEN’S RE­TREAT

Glossop Advertiser - - News - Ni­cola Gra­ham

EACH pass­ing week we are of­fer­ing new and dif­fer­ent sup­port. This Thurs­day evening we will host our sec­ond be­reave­ment sup­port group for par­ents that have been be­reaved of a child in the last 12 ● months. It is a gen­tle evening to en­gage and ex­plore al­ter­na­tive sup­port as well as share feel­ings with an ex­pe­ri­enced be­reave­ment friend and worker.

If you know of any­one with a heart full of miss, then please tell them about it.

The venue is The Lodge at Reuben’s and it is tonight, Thurs­day, July 27, from 6.30pm to 8pm.

This week­end we look for­ward to our Across The Bay walk. Good Luck ev­ery­one; Isaac will be walk­ing in mem­ory of his lit­tle brother.

On Sun­day we will come to­gether as fam­ily, trus­tees, col­leagues and vol­un­teers to pay our re­spects to the Woods fam­ily and cel­e­brate our foun­da­tion stone which will be 130 years old.

Our re­treat would look very dif­fer­ent with­out them.

This week we are on the hunt for some­one...

Some time ago I met a lovely cou­ple at the Lodge at Reuben’s and the lady wanted to vol­un­teer.

She shared how she wanted to vol­un­teer on a Wed­nes­day to avoid her iron­ing and this made me chuckle. But I am not sure if she ever came for­ward, and I want to make sure we have re­ceived her forms if she thinks she has al­ready sent them.

If you are await­ing con­tact, please ring us on 01457 680023, and if you know a lady who is still iron­ing on a Wed­nes­day, she needs sav­ing. So please get in touch.

Mean­while, we thank and con­tact ev­ery beau­ti­ful heart that graces our char­ity.

This week we send speedy re­cov­ery wishes and our heart­felt love to Chris Sagar. Chris has been a long time sup­porter of Reuben’s and a reg­u­lar REUn­ner.

On a re­cent chal­lenge he suf­fered a bad break to his leg. Please join us in send­ing him pos­i­tive well wishes.

No­body must be harmed in the mak­ing of our Re­treat is some­thing I of­ten say, so stay safe ev­ery­one.

Wish­ing the fol­low­ing safe trav­els in Reuben’s name this week as they un­der­take chal­lenges - our lovely Karen and Louise who are cy­cling 100 miles, Jo Sykes in her train­ing for In­dochina and the Angkor cy­cle, Team Travel Coun­sel­lors at Tough Mud­der York­shire and all our Across The Bay walk­ers.

Su­per thank yous this week go to St Paul’s Church and the Rev Emma, Staly­bridge, Sarah Hart­ley for her first 10k, Ty­rone from Cor­rie (Alan Hal­sall), Scenic and Emer­ald Wa­ter­ways, Lucy Cross, Roy and Tee Smethurst, Sim­mond­ley school and their pupils, Lucy Cross for her fundrais­ing and last, but by no means least, our fab­u­lous “Count­ess” Linda on cel­e­brat­ing her fab­u­lous birth­day and rais­ing for our cause – she looks, and is, fan­tas­tic.

Ni­cola Gra­ham’s son Reuben died in 2012
