The Edward Dee Fund supporting The Snowdrop Centre
Delighted to announce to you all that The Edward Dee Fund will be supporting The Snowdrop Centre, part of Donna's Dream House, by funding the planting of 5000 snowdrops which form part of the Snowdrop Walk at Stanley Park.
The Snowdrop Centre provides support to bereaved families after the death of a child, and to collaborate with this charity is very meaningful for me personally.
This collaboration is not only helping this other local charity, but is also reaching out to bereaved families; it is supporting the local community with this planting in the public park; it’s engaging with schools who will help us with the planting; and for the bereaved families to have two charities (both borne from a deeply personal story and child loss) supporting the Snowdrop Centre, I think is rather special. Both Len and myself have gone through the trauma and ordeal of child loss and to be able to support others whose child has died, is something we both have a drive and commitment to do. Charities who have a deep understanding of others through their own personal experience is incredibly powerful, meaningful and real.
I’m thrilled to be working with this other local charity, and I think Len feels equally as delighted. I have so many ideas as to more we can collaborate on in the future and it feels wonderful to be able to share this news with you.
