UFHN are pleased to announce that they will be fundraising for local Dorset charity, Mosaic – supporting bereaved children.
The award-winning underfloor heating company has several events planned for the year, including recently raising £160 from a charity cake sale, to help raise vital funds for Mosaic who are based in Milborne St Andrew, Blandford.
The charity, set up in 2007, was established following the identification of a clear gap in the provision for bereaved children in Dorset.
Whilst there was a small amount of support offered to children whose parents were dying of terminal illness, there was no support for other causes of death. Mosaic provides support to any young person who has experienced the death of a parent, grandparent, siblings, other close relative, friend or loved one and is finding it difficult to understand and express the overwhelming feeling grief can bring.
Paul Lines, UFHN Managing Director says, “To lose a close family member at a young age has a profound impact and the work that Mosaic does to provide a cohesive framework of support before, during and after the death of a loved one can make a huge difference to young people and their families.
“We will do all we can to help contribute towards the counselling sessions, activity days and residential weekends that Mosaic provides to our local community”.
Zoe Minogue Hughes, Mosaic’s Corporate Fundraiser, said “We are thrilled that UFHN have chosen to sponsor and fundraise for Mosaic. As a charity we rely on the generous donations, grants and support from corporate and community work.
“It has been a challenging time for all charities following the pandemic along with the current economic uncertainties, so we are very keen to raise awareness of Mosaic – supporting bereaved children across Dorset – partnering with UFHN will certainly help us do this.
“It is a privilege to work with so many families at school and in their homes. Our therapists have skills to really make a difference to families we work with to allow children to work through their grief and look forwards”.
