Great opportunities for men to do something together!
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 were very pleased to be able to relaunch our walks in autumn 2021 and have more planned around the country in the next few months. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest information and further dates in 2022.
If you’d like to know more about the dates, location or terrain, please email Dave Park, our Bereaved Parent Coordinator, with your contact details. He will pass your details to the guys who are organising it, and they will contact you directly with more information.
In loving memory of Harry, one of our Bereaved Parent Support Befrienders, who loved walking.
