Bake a cake and support Mosaic fundraiser.
4:00pm Friday 6th December 2013 in News
A DORSET charity supporting bereaved children is urging schools, businesses, community groups and individuals to get busy in the kitchen for a good cause.
Mosaic, which supports young people and their families following the death of a loved one, has just launched its second Bake a Cake and Support Mosaic fundraiser.
More than £5,500 was raised from the inaugural event this year, and Mosaic hopes the 2014 fundraiser, taking place on Friday, February 14, will be even more successful.
Money raised will help Mosaic with its individual and family support, and help fund the twice yearly residential camp weekends at Leeson House in Swanage, where children are invited to try new challenges, meet new friends who have also experienced bereavement and remember the special person who has died.
Mosaic fundraiser Katie Hensman said the charity was delighted that schools in particular joined in last year’s event so enthusiastically.
She added: “We hope that this year even more schools will take part, along with local Dorset companies too. Schools are aware of the bereavement support we provide and our Mosaic counsellors are regularly in and out of schools supporting not only the children, but their families and sometimes the teaching staff too.
“Feedback was that the children really wanted to do something to support others who have been affected by bereavement, some of whom were classmates at their school.”
