My story

[p][b]Alpine Challenge: Three Countries, Three Peaks, Three Days[/b][/p][p][b]LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO! [/b][/p][p]On the 9th-13th October 2019 I will be undertaking a challenge to mark Child Bereavement UK’s 25th year. We are a team of 21 dedicated supporters of Child Bereavement UK that will be taking on this Alpine Challenge! [/p][p]It is a unique challenge hiking 3 peaks in 3 countries (France, Italy and Switzerland) in 3 days reaching altitudes over twice as high as Ben Nevis.[/p][p]On each day of our challenge we will aim to summit a different peak in a new country, including; Testa Della Tronche, Italy (2,581m), Bel Oiseau, Switzerland (2,628m) and Aiguilette de Posettes, France (2,201m).[/p][p]We are aiming to raise funds for the charity to help them continue to grow and spread their work further supporting families and educating professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.[/p][p]I am supporting this charity on behalf of The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, who have been supporting CBUK for the past 5 years. [/p][p]• Every 22 minutes, a parent dies leaving dependent children. Around 111 children are bereaved of a parent every day.[/p][p]• Around 28 babies, children and young people under the age of 25 die each day in the UK – over 10,000 each year. [/p][p]Child Bereavement UK’s vision is for [b]all[/b]families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives, when a child grieves or when a child dies, and we want to help them to achieve this through our Team Alpine Challenge.[/p][p]Here are examples of what your donations collectively, will help to fund:[/p][p]£50 Provides a face to face support session[/p][p]£100 can train a volunteer for a family support group[/p][p]£500 provides Bereavement training for teachers[/p][p]£1000 supports a bereaved family for one year[/p][p]£2500 provides a training day for 30 midwives[/p][p]£5000 answers 200 calls to their national helpline.[/p][p]Their poignant ‘One More Minute’ film campaign was winner at the 2019 Charity Film Awards[/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p][url=][/url][/p][p]Any support you give would be great fully received - Now all I have to do is get my hiking boots on!
