My story

[span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]In September 2015, I celebrated 1 year at Nelson's Journey and set myself a challenge to fundraise over the year. I have taken part in a Skydive, held an online auction and held several cake sales. I can hardly believe the year has come around so quickly but here I am two fantastic years into working with this inspirational charity, supporting children and young people in Norfolk. [/span][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][p] [/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]My last fundraiser (for now!) is a final online auction, I have more lovely prizes for you all to bid against and hope that you can enjoy these treats knowing that the money you donate will go directly to supporting children and young people in Norfolk at a really difficult time in their life. [/span] [p] [/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]I have learnt so much and seen the positive impact that offering support to children and young people that have had someone significant to them die, so I am pleased that you are able to be part of their journey in moving forward positively. [/span][p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]When I joined Nelson's Journey we had received 506 referrals, this year we have already received 517, putting us on course to supporting over 800 children and young people by the end of 2016! There is no better time than now to support this charity and the work they do in bringing back smiles to these children. [/span][p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]The support that is offered to these children and young people by the child bereavement support workers at Nelson’s Journey is outstanding. I have seen a significant change in children and young people after receiving a service from us, the transformation over just one weekend is breath-taking, but this would often be after some intensive 1:1 work with the child or young person.[/span] [p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]None of this work would be possible without the money donated to us each year which I see every day in my role looking after all of the lovely community fundraisers!  it will cost Nelson's Journey around £500,000 to offer our services,  I would love to reach £4000.00 which is very achievable with all the amazing prizes I have to offer.[/span] [p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]I have set up this Virgin Money page as it’s the easiest way to collect fundraising and no fees are taken at all, which means all the money I raise will be going straight to Nelson’s Journey![/span] [p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]You can join my online auction on Facebook, simply copy this link into your URL [url=https://www.facebook.com/events/1310863582360199/]https://www.facebook.com/events/1310863582360199/[/url][/span] [/p][p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]It costs around £248.00 to send one child to attend one of our residential weekends at which they will meet children with similar situations to them and build on their confidence and have access to coping strategies which gives them good grounding to continue to move forward positively with their life.[/span] [/p][p][p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]Please help Bring Back Smiles to bereaved children and young people.[/span] [/p][p][p] [/p][p][span=font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: "Verdana",sans-serif; color: black;]THANK YOU![/span] [p] [/p][/p][/p][/p][/p][/p][/p][/p][/p][/p][/p]
