We provide a peer-to-peer support network to help anyone widowed aged 50 or under


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In October 2019 I lost my best friend. My husband died suddenly and very unexpectedly at the age of 34 from a rare tumour we didn’t even know he had.  Mine and my two young girls’ (3 and 1 at the time) lives were quite simply crushed.  Nothing can prepare you for that. 

I was thrown into being a solo parent whilst trying to process the grief of losing my husband and trying to comfort two girls who had lost their Daddy.

WAY (Widowed and Young) are the only UK charity to provide bereavement support for people who are widowed or have lost a partner before the age of 50. This is a charity that is especially close to my heart, and I cannot explain what a support it is to be able to speak to people who ‘just get it’. As well as providing articles with guidance for navigating bereavement, funeral planning, talking to children and much, much more they also provide peer-to-peer support groups which connect people across the UK and Ireland who have shared similar experiences. This is an invaluable resource to thousands who would have otherwise found themselves struggling

Anything you can give, however big or small really is appreciated. 

Thanks, Nicki x
