Balloons Bereavement Memory Weekend
March 17 @ 10:00 am - March 18 @ 1:00 pm
Thanks to the 50 for Free scheme run by The Landmark Trust, Balloons have been given a local landmark, which sleeps up to 14 people, as a venue for a pilot residential for children and young people bereaved of a parent. All attendees will have completed grief support sessions with a Balloons volunteer. It is the first time Balloons has attempted a residential bereavement memory day and we’re extremely grateful to The Landmark Trust for giving us this opportunity. The weekend will provide the young people with a chance to remember the parent who has died, to explore their feelings and share their experiences with others in a similar position. We are also able to offer a 2-hour session to the parents and carers of each young person to share their experiences. We’d like to thank fellow bereavement charity Mosaic for offering us advice and information in how they run their own residential over the border in Dorset.
