Grief Encounter are thrilled to announce that their hugely successful ‘Forget-Me-Not Walk’ has been shortlisted in the Third Sector Awards 2021. The awards, sponsored by Ansvar, recognise the achievements of charities and provide a platform for examples of good practice.

Grief Encounter’s “Forget-Me-Not” Walk, shortlisted for Fundriaisng Campaign of the year, was a virtual fundraising event that took place during lockdown on 21st March 2021, marking a year to the week of when the UK first went into lockdown. This was the first national, virtual event we’ve ever held. In excess of 300 people, including children and their families, up and down the country, walked in memory of a loved one to raise funds for bereaved children and young people. Despite the initial fundraising target being set at £10,000, staggeringly, existing and new supporters raised £200,000.

The Winners will be announced on the 17th September, so watch this space.
