Despite the uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re in the mood to celebrate! Not only is it a year ago since we held our launch event in Bishop Wilton, but we have recently learned that, with the help of our Business and Operations Manager, Tony Barker, we are now an official charity.
I’m so proud of what we have achieved together in the last twelve months. With the help of our dedicated team, we have been able to branch out with regular wellbeing social events in the Driffield and Selby areas and, most recently, we have also taken on the lease of a property in Market Weighton for a community hub and wellbeing barn that will be launched as soon as it is safe to do so.
We were delighted to learn during lockdown that our application for charitable status had been successful. We’re so grateful to Tony for guiding us through the application process and helping us to get to a position where we can start to apply for funding.
Thanks also to our fabulous counsellors and group members who have embraced technology to enjoy virtual wellbeing socials on Zoom whilst we’ve been on lockdown. It’s been great ‘seeing’ everybody and people have benefitted from being able to connect with others, albeit via technology instead of in person.
Over the last year, I have learnt that loss comes in many forms other than bereavement – loneliness, depression, dementia, anxiety, degenerative illness, stress and so the list goes on.
The Zoom virtual wellbeing sessions take place every Saturday at 4pm. Please contact me on 07885 206473 for login details. For more information about Talking about Loss, please visit more pages on this website.
