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.
