35 representatives from 12 local funeral homes attended an awareness evening for Nelson’s Journey, Norfolk’s child bereavement charity, during Dying Matters Awareness Week. The event, which brought together those in the funeral industry with staff, volunteers and supporters of the charity, was held at Nelson’s Journey’s new home, Smiles House.
Rosedale Funeral Home and GreenAcres Woodland Burials – Colney, sponsored the event which featured talks from Senior Bereavement Support Worker, Lorna Vyse, and previous user of Nelson’s Journey’s services, and now young volunteer, Samantha Woods.
The event was also a chance for GreenAcres’ Managing Director, Andy Paling, to present a cheque for £3,000 to the Norfolk charity.
