My story

[p]Thank you for taking the time to read our page.[/p][p]There is an uncomfortable stigma around the topic of grief, and if it wasn’t for charities like Grief Encounter many children would continue to feel alone, confused and scared during their on-going battle with their loss. [/p][p]After experiencing the effects of grief first hand, through the tragic death of my Dad when I was 16, I was lucky enough to be touched by the work that Grief Encounter does. Their mission is to be one of the leading providers of support services for bereaved children and their families throughout the UK; in order to help children find outlets for their grief, and a way to move forward. [/p][p]To mark the 5th anniversary year, I will be taking on the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro alongside my mum. Our training has begun and we are looking forward (with some trepidation!) to our climb in October this year.[/p][p]Please dig deep and help us to achieve our goal![/p][p]Climbing in memory of Paul Simons xxx[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p]
