You Raise Me Up are a small,local Charity that supports families who have suffered the death of a child aged 16-25.
We offer individual counselling to bereaved family members to help towards improving their mental health wellbeing as well as our Support Groups.
We have our Drop in Support Centre in Polegate High Street which is a safe environment for our families to share feelings and thoughts with others in similar situations.
The Centre is also our Coffee Shop and the Hub of the local Community where people meet regularly.
We held a Christmas Day Lunch last year and will this year too!
IT IS OUR CHARITY’S HOME!
With the Corona Virus hitting us earlier this year and the Government guidelines for social distancing and lockdown, we have had to either postpone or cancel all our fundraising events for the foreseeable future, as well as close the Support Centre and Coffee Shop.
This leaves our Charity in a vulnerable position as we cannot raise funds through our usual channels.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
We have set up a Crowdfunder Appeal and are asking our local Community, businesses, supporters and anyone else to help us raise much needed funds to help the the Charity continue its work through these difficult times.
We have been lucky enough to be chosen by Crowfunder with East Sussex County Council as one of the Charities that will have a proportion of the donations matched.
We need to reach our target in just 4 weeks
The Appeal is launched this week - Wednesday 6th May 2020
We understand that times are uncertain financially for many of us and that's why anything you can give will be so greatly appreciated by us, our families and the local Community that use our services.
REMEMBER, THE DONATIONS WILL BE DOUBLED BY CROWDFUNDER!
