REUBEN’S RE­TREAT

Glossop Advertiser - - News - Ni­cola Gra­ham

● DO you have a lit­tle wor­rier at home?

Or do you know of a lit­tle wor­rier?

Maybe a young per­son has re­cently suf­fered loss or has a poorly rel­a­tive?

Maybe they’re strug­gling at school or un­sure about where they fit in the world? This Saturday we will be host­ing two work­shops for lit­tle peo­ple with wor­ries. A chance to ex­plore their feel­ings and an op­por­tu­nity to share their wor­ries with those who love them. It re­ally is a beau­ti­ful ses­sion and is hosted, writ­ten and cre­ated by ● one of our ac­cred­ited coun­sel­lors Amy Smythe aka ‘The worry wizard’.

Please call us for more de­tails on: 01457 680023.

This week we will have vis­ited an­other two fab­u­lous chil­dren’s hos­pices within a spe­cific ra­dius of our re­treat.

It is im­por­tant that we share our ser­vices and vi­sion for the fu­ture, as well as un­der­stand any gaps that there may be and also learn from those who have gone be­fore us.

This Sun­day at 7pm it is ‘wave of light’, an op­por­tu­nity to join be­reaved par­ents, fam­i­lies and friends around the globe to com­mem­o­rate all ba­bies who died too soon. Sim­ply light a can­dle at 7pm and leave it burn­ing for at least one hour. Think­ing of all those with great ‘miss’ in their hearts.

We can­not con­tinue our work with­out the gen­er­ous hearts that grace our char­ity and this week’s thank yous go to: Green­side cat­tery, Ge­off and Julie Hag­gerty, Gill Peach, Bam­ford club, David Wood, Cen­tral Methodist Church Glos­sop, Give a car, Bradley’s bak­ery, Glos­sop Par­ish church, Mr and Mrs Hol­land, pro Lau­rence singers, Shel­don Arms, Bourne Leisure, T4SL, Green­halgh bak­ery and Aleya, Di­rect do­na­tors and Amy our worry wizard.

We would also like to wish our very own of­fice man­ager Rachael good luck for the Manchester half-marathon on Sun­day and all those join­ing her and sup­port­ing our cause – stay safe REUn­ners.

For any­one look­ing to run for Reuben at the Manchester 10k next year, di­ary May 20, it’s going to be a bumper run next year and Daddy Mike has com­mit­ted to the half marathon, wow!

Who’s up for join­ing him?
