Story

We are aware that Arro's young friends are in shock and are grieving for his loss. They don't have much support and don't really know what to with these huge feelings (who does really?). We are feeling strongly to reach out to them, to show them that we care about them, and in some way help them with this process by being together.

Our idea is to take them away on a weekend trip where they can all be together in a different environment and also do something outdoorsy and physical. We have hired a bunkhouse in the Forest of Dean for the w/e of November 16-18. On the Saturday we plan to go to 'Go Ape' then in the evening go to the local pub for a meal.

The funds raised will be to pay for: minibus hire, bunkhouse, meals, Go Ape, 'Landyzone' has already donated £1800 but we need about another £1000 to fund this trip.

In April next year we plan to take them on a weekend canoe/camping trip on the River Wye. Nick (Arro's step-dad) is a canoe instructor and has a fleet of canoes and all the kit, hence the only expenses will be transport, food, and camping fees. This comes to about £1500.

We would also like to plan a trip for September 2019, in rememberence of him.

Our long term vision is to to involve his friends in fundraising to support on going events for them and potentially for other vulnerable young people.

    And...three of Arro's friend would like therapeutic support with their grief, and one will be starting a course to make a guitar. All of which we will be able to support by funding them- thanks to your support.

    We met again, 18 of Arro's friends and us for dinner. It was deeply nourishing for all of us to be together. Among the many comments:- 'Being together like this with everyone, talking about Arro, is more healing for me, than talking to a stranger" They have asked to meet regulary before the June canoe trip Thank you for your on going support, please keep sharing so we can make the 5,000 goal

    Thank you everyone who felt inspired and helped us so far. Updating you all with where this fund is going. We will meet for dinner in the new year, so we can keep a continuity with the group and see how they are doing. We will discuss ways of fundraising within the group, finding out how they would be best supported outside weekends away, as well as opening it up to young people who might need support around the community. We will start plans for canoeing weekend away in the spring. Blessings to everyone for this holyday period.
