In search of inspiration this Mother’s Day? Child Bereavement UK is here to help with new weekly activity sessions being set up in the run up to Mother’s Day on Sunday 26th March.

The events are part of Child Bereavement UK’s #MakeforMum initiatve to celebrate and remember mothers everywhere, or for mums to remember their children this Mother’s Day.

The sessions will take place on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th of March in the charity’s Runcorn offices.  They will be shared online nationally via social media channels to help raise awareness and show supporters how to create something unique for #MakeforMum.

Child Bereavement UK’s Fundraising Officer Seb Farrell said:

We know from families we have supported at Child Bereavement UK that Mother’s Day can be a particularly difficult time when a mum, dad, grandparent, baby or child in their family has died. By taking part in #MakeforMum and fundraising for Child Bereavement UK, you can help the charity to reach many more families who may need bereavement support around occasions such as Mother’s Day and throughout the year. These short online sessions will be a good opportunity for people to learn more about the charity and get some ideas on what to #MakeforMum.

Mothering Sunday falls on 26th March this year, but you can hold your own #MakeforMum event whenever suits you best in March. From creating a special meal, making tea, baking, making candles or cards, to holding a fundraising cake sale for friends or colleagues, you are invited to join in, get creative and host your own #MakeforMum event.
