CHEQUE FOR £10,000 PRESENTED TO NELSON’S JOURNEY BY WAYLAND SPRING BALL COMMITTEE.

Members of the  organising committee of the Wayland Spring Ball, Claire Bowes, Shirley Scott and Di Sculfer, were very pleased to present Norfolk children’s charity, Nelson’s Journey, with a cheque for £10,000 raised at the Ball, which was held on 10th March at Lynford Hall.  Receiving the cheque was Sarah Hyde, of Nelson’s Journey. 

Nelson’s Journey gives valuable support and comfort to bereaved children in Norfolk and Sarah said:

“A full package of support costs £522 for a child or young person. This includes an assessment of a child’s bereavement needs, attendance on a therapeutic weekend and one to one follow up work. That means the fantastic £10,000 could fund 19 children through this process, helping them to move forward positively with their lives”

Claire Bowes of the organising committee said:

“We are delighted to have been able to raise £10,000 for Nelson’s Journey at this year’s Ball. It is only with the generous support of our guests, sponsors and donors that we are able to raise the funds that we do and we are extremely thankful for their continued support”
