L-R Sarah,Yvonne Abbott ( Cala Homes),Vanessa,Fenella and Paul from Cruse charity.The Oxfordshire branch of Cruse Bereavement Care received £500 funding to support their local monthly friendship groups, and provide vital ongoing companionship for those who have been bereaved.

The service maintains a telephone help line and 70-80 trained Bereavement Support Volunteers who offer programmes of weekly counselling sessions, all free of charge. 

Monthly friendship groups take place in four locations across the county. Primarily social groups, designed for people who have moved on a stage in their grieving and would like to be in the company of others who understand their situation, these groups also support the work of Cruse by fundraising. Each group is run by trained Cruse volunteers. 

The donation will be used to support the continuation of the friendship groups, which includes volunteers travel expenses, refreshment costs and administration costs.
