Heart FM Announces £68,100 For Edward’s Trust
Heart Breakfast Show has announced their Global’s Make Some Noise fundraising challenge is donating £68,100 to the Edward’s Trust, the charity that provides invaluable support to children and young people around bereavement that is based on Calthorpe Estate at Greenfield Crescent.
Yvonne Gilligan, CEO, Edward’s Trust said: “We are delighted and thank Global and their incredible listeners for such a generous amount that will help fund our children’s bereavement services over the next two years.”
The donation will pay towards two dedicated “Make Some Noise” children’s counsellors, who will in turn provide one to one counselling sessions, develop and manage group counselling sessions and organise a social activity calendar for bereaved children. This will include craft activities, action- packed skateboarding activities, a Remembrance service and a family Christmas party.
In mid-May, Edward’s Trust also launched Phase One of a £1.2 million capital appeal to fund their new home, as they plan to move from their current location to new premises in December 2017.
