We are delighted to announce our nominated Charity for 2018 is Stars: for young people facing grief.
Everyone will experience bereavement during their life, but for young people, the death of a parent or another important person in their lives can be terrible to deal with.
Young people need time to be listened to and to speak about their fears and hopes for the future, but sometimes that’s difficult when others in the family are coping with their own grief. It can be helpful for young people to have support from someone outside of the family, to enable them to share their thoughts and emotions, which if left unexpressed, can lead to anger, disruptive behaviour and concentration issues at school.
We've held the basic price of a Daffodil Weekend stall pitch at 2017s prices, but only until 31st December.Read More
Yesterday evening at the Daffodil Weekend open meeting, donations and grants were handed out to our benefiting local charities and community organisations.
EACH Milton, our nominated charity for 2017, received a cheque for £9,400 towards expanding their 'Help at home' volunteering initiative which aims to link a caring individual to a family to provide practical support such as cooking, driving, cleaning and gardening. The type of help needed will vary. For some people it might be maintaining the garden, for others help with a one-off job that would just never get done otherwise. The service is needed because caring for a child with complex care needs or a serious illness can be physically and emotionally draining, taking a huge amount of time – which is more precious than anything to families. www.each.org.uk
Other local charities and community projects to benefit from grants were:
HeART - Heathfield
St George’s Church, Thriplow
Thriplow Cricket Club
Thriplow Village Hall Management Committee
Fowlmere & Thriplow Gardening Club
This weekend, we raise a phenomenal £43,000 for our local charities. A huge thank you to everyone who made the weekend so special...
The visitors have gone home happy, the stallholders have packed up any remaining wares, the volunteers are able to put their feet up with a well-earned cup of tea and our EACH Charity VIPs have their goody bags.
Thank you all for coming to see us!
