Youngsters will benefit from Lionesses’ support
The Hospice’s bereavement service for children and young people has been boosted after a generous group of Thetford ladies kept up their fundraising efforts.
The Thetford Lionesses (Breckland) have continued to show their support for the Hospice after donating £1,000 to its Nicky’s Way service.
Miranda McCoy, hospice community fundraiser, said: “I’d like to thank the Lionesses for their donation, and for once again welcoming me along to see them. We are so grateful for their continued support.
“Our Nicky’s Way service offers support for bereaved children and young people across West Suffolk and Thetford and this donation will make a big difference to the children, young people and families we help.”
Nicky’s Way is a six-week programme, which in small groups of no more than six, gives children and young people the chance to share their worries, fears, hopes and feelings and ask questions alongside others in the same situation.
The groups are run by staff and trained volunteers from the hospice’s Family Support Team and are open to any youngster who lives in West Suffolk or Thetford who has been bereaved, whether connected to the hospice or not.
