Recently, the Children’s Healing and Therapeutic Support (CHATS) Team held a special memory event; ‘A Little Time to Remember’.
Sally Roberts, Children’s Therapeutic Practitioner, said they had 13 children and young people attend, while parents also stayed to enjoy refreshments.
“We wanted to offer a therapeutic event here at the hospice where children can meet others who are also coping with a bereavement,” Sally explains.
“The children were invited to participate in arts and crafts that encouraged them to share their thoughts, feelings and any special memories. These then became special keepsakes they took home with them.”
The last part of the evening included a service where attendees were invited to read a poem or say a few words about the person they have come to remember if they wanted to.
Thank you to everyone who attended and to our fabulous CHATS Team for putting on such a lovely event.
