Linda said a few words to everyone about the charity and how they reach out to help families who are facing any kind of crisis; from telephone 'befriending' to hosting event days and weekends. Stewart and Linda have had first hand experience of the support and encouragement they can offer when they attended a residential weekend some months after Thomas died. They were in the company of many other bereaved parents and far from being a gloomy occasion it was safe and uplifting and gave them hope that they could begin to feel some happiness again. They have continued to support the charity since and suggested that this coffee morning should raise funds for the charity. Today £100 was raised for 'Care for the Family'.
