“My mum died when I was 11 and my family and I had no support. When I found out about Grief Encounter I knew instantly that I had to get involved. I wanted to contribute and work in a way that would really make a difference. I love helping set up workshops, attending their events as an extra pair of hands, co-ordinating other volunteers and, my favourite project of all, coordinating the Grief Encounter Children’s Choir. Volunteering has also given me the push to commit to professional therapist training. My journey has been everything I hoped it would be and more.”
