￼Hi, My name is Nicola Hewitt and I am raising money for Teddy Hewitt Foundation. The charity helps families in Essex after the passing of a disabled child. I set the charity up after my own experience having had to give up work and then rely financially on the disability living allowance and carers allowance. The amount was a far cry from my salary but we made it work. When Teddy passed the payments were stopped immediately. While arranging his funeral I was also looking for work.
I am the lucky one. I was back in work the following week but not everyone is able to do so.
As a charity we aim to fill this gap and help bereaved parents back to work and to access the support they need.
Thank you so much for reading. Take Care, look out for us in the Southend Echo Newspaper over the coming days xxx
