Could your school hold a Teddy Bears’ Picnic?

As I’m sure you can imagine, 2020 was a difficult year for Penhaligon’s Friends.  The usual army of enthusiastic volunteers who organise bake sales, concerts and fairs were unable to fundraise, yet the need for child bereavement support in Cornwall was still very apparent. We have continued to provide support to families and schools across the county throughout the pandemic by thinking creatively and adapting the way we work. 

Now – we need your help!  By holding a Teddy Bears’ Picnic at your school you can help us to continue providing vital support in your local community.  It’s easy, just follow the 5 steps below.  We plan to send further information by email at the beginning of May, and will have resources available on our website then too.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email.

Jayne Gets Cycling Again!

With a combined age of 200, Jayne, Joanna and Colin bravely started cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats in stages last year.  After the first stage, the team had to postpone due to injury and had hoped to be cycling again this September.  Because of the current situation this just isn’t possible and the team hope to be able to complete it next year.

Meanwhile, in order to honour their sponsors so far, Jayne will be attempting the remaining 900 miles this month over 15 days from her home in Cornwall. Friends have planned routes of around 60 miles each through some absolutely stunning countryside and offered to cook supper at the end of the day!! Fingers crossed that the ‘old girl’ can manage the distance!

Good luck Jayne, we can’t wait for the updates and pictures!

Here’s the Just Giving page if you’d like to support them.

Bereavement Champion Training for Schools

Penhaligon’s Friends & Cornwall Educational Psychology Team have teamed up in the hope that each school in Cornwall will, not only be showing proudly their ‘Grief Awareness Logo’ but that they will all have a ‘Bereavement Champion’ who can, on behalf of the wider school community, be a go to for advice on how to support a bereaved child.

In this 2 part training course we will cover basic childhood loss & grief, typical reaction to bereavement, what bereaved children need, your role as a Bereavement Champion and implementing a whole school ethos around managing bereavement in a healthy way.

We are hosting this session on Zoom.

For further information or to book please see our Facebook page or visit Eventbrite
