Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement. We aim to ensure the accessibility of high quality child bereavement support and information to all families and professionals by increasing our reach; plugging the gaps that exist in bereavement support and training across the country; and embedding standards in the sector.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email & fundraising pack from our events team
  • a Child Bereavement UK running vest to wear on the day with iron on letters
  • support from our dedicated fundraising & events team to achieve your target
  • e-newsletters updating you with news from across the charity
  • access to our online Facebook group, where other fundraisers share training and fundraising advice

The event was really well organised, taking in some of London’s most iconic sights. There were great crowds lining the streets, cheering you on when the legs were beginning to ache which helped spur me on! The bag drop off and collection was really easy to use. I would recommend this event to runners of all abilities, a great day out and a chance to raise money for a charity that means so much to me.
