Marjorie Barlow, mum of Take That’s Gary Barlow, is helping to raise awareness of #MakeforMum in the run up to Mother’s Day. #MakeforMum is a new initiative from Child Bereavement UK to celebrate and remember mothers everywhere, or for mums to remember their children this Mother’s Day.

Marjorie is a volunteer for Child Bereavement UK, which supports families and educates professionals when a child grieves and when a child dies. Her son Gary Barlow became a patron of the charity last November.

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.

Mother’s Day falls on 26th March this year, but you can hold your own #MakeforMum event whenever suits you best in the run up to the day. 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.
