Walsall Bereavement Support Service

We offer caring bereavement support to adults, children/young people & families

Charity Registration No. 1152724


Those that know me will testify that I’m a) far from being an Olympian and b) despite cycling fairly regularly, still have legs not too dissimilar to Pinocchios.

Add to this the fact that I’ve never cycled anywhere near 100 miles in a day and you will appreciate that this event will be a challenge! If I’m honest, I’m more than a little apprehensive.

I have been raising money for a few years now for Walsall Bereavment Services (WBS). WBS is a fantastic charity based in Walsall that supports young people who have suffered a bereavement or adults bereaved by a suicide. The impact losing a loved one has on people varies but, as I know first hand, services such as WBS are vital to help with the emotional rollercoaster that follows after a loved one passes. WBS like many charities has seen its grant funding fall considerably and so any money raised will make a huge difference. You will be making a difference!

So, if you are able to donate it would spur me on to the finish line and help WBS to continue to provide much needed support to individuals.
