Bereaved Parent Support

Losing a child is very isolating and it makes such a difference to spend time with other parents in a safe supportive environment.
On Saturday 10thJune, to raise awareness for anyone local, the “Care for the Family” national charity is holding a support day at St Marks Church, Grenoside Sheffield S35 8PR for parents who have lost a child of any age or in any circumstance.

The CDYST on Coldwell Lane S10 5TJ is looking for someone to clean/monitor the hall.
It’s a few hours per week, very flexible with some weekend work.
It would suit someone local & maybe someone who has an interest in the local community.
