A Retreat For Children And Families After Suicide

This year my family suffered a devastating loss, the father of my children (5 year old twins) and partner of 8 years ended his own life. I am not going to go into all the details as it’s just too painful for all the family and friends involved. What I will talk about is the fact that their was not a single ounce of help or support from external agencies in helping us with the shock and grief especially my sweet children! It has taken a lot of time to realise that playing and keeping busy eases that for my boys. I have a dream to raise enough money to buy a holiday cabin for children and their families to use free of charge as a retreat after suicide in the family. I hope to fill it with books and toys and with some outside space make a sensory garden! Any more suggestions let me know. But something has to be done for the families that suffer after such a loss...Hollie.
