Weʼre raising £2,000 to We are raising funds to start a charity called Adeles Gift which will provide financial assistance to help the wellbeing of grieving parents
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are starting a charity called Adele's Gift which is to benefit the wellbeing of families who go through the tragedy of losing a child or young adult. It is the worst nightmare of any parent. Grieving is hard when a child passes away knowing that they have not lived their lives to the fullest.The family left behind have to carry on without them and every day can be a struggle. A lot of families lose their income for various reasons. When having to leave a career due to becoming the main carer for the child or children money very quickly becomes an issue and help can be hard to find.
We had the idea of setting up this charity following the sudden passing of our daughter Adele at 37. Adele has left her partner Daniel and her young son George who was only 4 years at the time. All our lives have changed forever and things will never be the same without Adele our cherished daughter, mum to George and irreplaceable life partner to Daniel.
Adele's Gift will help to fund some of the things that we have personally found to be helpful throughout our own grieving process. The emotional pain of grieving can be so overwhelming and it is easy to overlook the importance of maintaining your own wellbeing when faced with so many difficulties.
Our aim is to raise money through fundraising to provide financial assistance to enable families to access services such as counselling, meditation, reiki, reflexology etc at a point where it is most needed. We understand that the NHS services are stretched and often it is difficult to obtain help immediately.
Adele's Gift will help to fill this gap
On Sunday 25th November Adele would have been 39, to celebrate her birthday and to keep her memory alive 9 of us are running in the Doncaster 10k. Any sponsorship or donations you can offer would be gratefully received. The money raised will all go to our new charity Adele's Gift.
