You Raise Me Up 2018

Why we need your help

A wife who loses a husband is called a widow

A husband who loses a wife is called a widower

A child who loses his parents is called an orphan

But ... there is no word for a parent that loses a child

On 3rd May 2011 Fraser and Jane's beautiful daughter Megan collapsed and died suddenly. As parents, they found themselves in desperate need of comfort from those that had experienced the same loss and to see how others coped and got through such a terrible time. They found there was limited support available and when strong enough, decided they wanted to help others experiencing the same feelings of grief.

The charity's sole purpose is to offer financial and emotional support to the families that have lost a yound adult between the ages of 16 and 25.

The financial strains that a funeral can put on those left behind can be a real concern as no parent wants to feel like they are "scrimping" on their child's on their child's final farewell.

It is a real but sad fact that no parent should have to consider saving and planning for their child's funeral. Yet the cost of ensuring that you have the opportunity to give your child a beautiful and deserving service is something that no financial help, for a teenager of a certain age, is available for. 

The charity there fore aims to provide that help and provide the funeral the child deserves.

In addition, the charity offers one-to-one counselling and support groups.

We have a coffee shop in Polegate open to public which helps raise funds for the charity.
