Latest update from Glastonbury Festival
Childhood bereavement charity Winston's Wish – giving hope to grieving children has just announced Emily Eavis as a new patron.
Winston’s Wish was set up in 1992 to provide support to children and young people who have been bereaved of a parent or sibling. It was the first childhood bereavement charity to be established in the UK, and today continues to lead the way in childhood bereavement support services.
Said Emily: “I'm honoured to have been invited to become a patron of Winston’s Wish. I have huge respect and gratitude for the work that Winston’s Wish does to support children and young people who have lost a parent or sibling, which I experienced first-hand after losing my mum.”
Young people who are experiencing bereavement can access support via the charity’s dedicated young person’s website help2makesense.org/ where they can also access its online chat service.
Parents and professionals supporting a bereaved child or young person can call the Freephone National Helpline on 08088 020 021 for on-going support and advice. Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. www.winstonswish.org
