Capron & Helliwell’s charity of the year for 2017 was Nelson’s Journey and the firm was delighted to have raised £3,500
Gena Moore, Corporate Fundraiser at Nelson’s Journey, commented:
“That’s incredible, thank you so much! What a phenomenal amount of money, we really appreciate your support. To put it into context, it’s enough to send 14 children and young people on one of our therapeutic Residential Weekends at Hilltop Outdoor Centre near Sheringham. On these interventions, children meet others who have also been bereaved, realise they are not alone in their grief, and learn coping mechanisms for their negative emotions. There is also lots of work done to remember the person who died, and they are an incredibly therapeutic experience for the children we support.
Please send huge thanks and congratulations to all of your colleagues for all the amazing fundraising and support they have given Nelson’s Journey over the past year. We had our busiest year yet in 2017, with 952 referrals, so the money you’ve raised really will go to make a difference in your local community, helping us keep up with the growing demand on our service.”
