Someone once said, “Women often grieve face to face, whereas men do it shoulder to shoulder.” Men aren’t always that good at just talking – we prefer to do something!
Some of our Bereaved Parent Support Befrienders just love to organise walks for bereaved men – we affectionately call them ‘Harry’s Hikes’ in loving memory of Harry, one of our befrienders who sadly died in 2018 (he loved walking).
We know that there are a lot of guys who enjoy walking. These walks are a great opportunity for those who have experienced untimely bereavement to spend time with other men who truly understand the heartache of losing a son or daughter, or a partner early in life.
We held two walks in 2019 and had planned more in 2020, which we had to postpone. However, we are very pleased to be able to relaunch our walks this autumn. Our first is expected to be in Oxfordshire on Saturday 30 October 2021, restrictions permitting.
Please keep an eye on this webpage and our Facebook page for the latest information and further dates.
If you’d like to join us for one of these walks or you want to know a bit more about the location or terrain, please email Dave Park with your contact details. He will pass your details to the guys who are organising it, and they will contact you direct with more information.
In loving memory of Harry, one of our Bereaved Parent Support Befrienders, who loved walking.
