Paralympic Torch in Chard tomorrow
11:13am Friday 5th October 2012 in News
PEOPLE have can have their photo taken with the Paralympic Torch and support the Rosie Crane Trust for bereaved parents by making a donation at Sainsbury’s in Chard on Saturday from 9.30am to 11.30am.
The Trust is Sainsbury’s Charity of the Year.
The Trust supports bereaved parents through a confidential ‘listening ear’ service where trained, volunteer-bereaved parents answer the phone to other parents who need someone to talk to.
It has two drop-in centres, a new one on the first Saturday in the month at South Street Centre, 20 South Street, Yeovil.
The other has been running for three years on the third Saturday in the month at The Albemarle Centre, Albemarle Road, Taunton. Bereaved parents can meet informally and talk to others who have had similar experiences to them in a safe, confidential environment.
Both drop-in centres run from 10.30am to 12.30pm. Subsidised counselling may be considered and a befriending service is available.
Sainsbury’s staff have been organising events to raise funds for the Trust and help raise awareness of the services it provides.
