Children’s support for charity sky high
Baloons released during colourful sponsored walk
The Uxbridge Gazette Series BEREAVED children sent a message to family members and friends in the sky during a sponsored charity walk in Hayes.
Halo Children’s Foundation’s charity sponsored walk was opened by the Deputy Mayor of Hillingdon Carol Melvin on Saturday May 21.
The day was a ‘great success’ which saw a release of colourful balloons to mark the event at Barra Hall Park.
The charity supports children and their families who have lost a loved one and holds a monthly expressive arts and play group at Uxbridge College, offering art therapy, counselling and behaviour management.
Founder and mum-oftwo Alia Jones launched the charity after she lost her partner in 2011, two weeks after giving birth to her second child Jaida, while older sister Neveah was only two-years-old.
She said: “Halo pay for families to go on trips to help create new memories together and with funding our main aim is to open a bereavement centre where families can come to, to get the support they need as there is nothing like this offered in the community at the moment.”
If you would like support for yourself and your family with bereavement email info@ halochildrensfoundation. org.uk or call Alia on 07903709622.
