Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email and fundraising pack
  • a charity vest to wear on the day
  • support to achieve your target from our dedicated team 
  • e-newsletters updating you with news from across the charity
  • access to our fundraiser's Facebook group

I ran for Child Bereavement UK because after hearing of the work they do. I thought they were such a valuable charity that don’t get enough recognition. The Royal Parks event was a great experience with an amazing atmosphere, it was a perfect route for someone running their first half marathon. I couldn’t recommend it enough, who would’ve thought you could enjoy running 13 miles?!
