Quote from Sophie Berry, Funding & Marketing Manager at Nelson’s Journey:
“This year, approximately 470 children, living in Norfolk, will be spending their first Christmas without a parent following their death. Regardless of whether the death of a special person happened recently or many years ago, Christmas is one of the most challenging calendar events for many bereaved families.
“We were delighted to work in partnership with the Porch Fairies to create a very special Christmas card that will raise valuable funds to support our work with Norfolk’s bereaved children and young people. The Porch Fairies have created a very special design that captures the magic of their illustrations but is also very relevant to the cause of Nelson’s Journey.
“The special edition Christmas card is available for purchase from the Nelson’s Journey online shop priced at £3.95 per pack of 5 cards. Funds raised from the sale of these cards will be sufficient to fund two places on a therapeutic weekend for bereaved children which will provide them with the opportunity to meet others who have had a similar experience, remember the person that has died, express their feelings and learn coping strategies for when things are feeling particularly challenging in the future.”
