Could Your School or Group 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 or group you can help us to continue providing vital support in your local community.  It’s easy, just follow the 5 steps below.

We have lots of other resources available for schools and groups including colouring in sheets, teddy bear masks, a quiz on our website here.

Remembering on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is on 14th March 2021 this year in the UK and is a special day for honouring and appreciating mothers.  It is also a personal day, and means different things for each of us.

Children who have sadly lost their mum may want to take time to make or write something for their mum and in her memory.  They may want to write a message for her or use words or a picture that reminds them of their mum.  They could choose to leave it in a special place or give it to someone else to look after. 

One simple and nice way of remembering could be to make egg box flowers which children could attach a little message to if they want.  You can find our pdf with easy, 6 step instructions here.
