You may remember our non-uniform day on the last day of Term 6 back in July. The funds raised from this day were subsequently donated to Dragonflies Childhood Bereavement project. Fellowship of St Nicholas (FSN), the non-profit organisation who run the Dragonflies project, have been in touch with us confirming they have received our £309.31 donation. A massive thank you goes to everyone who contributed.
If you are unfamiliar with FSN and/or the Dragonflies project please see below:
"As Dragonflies begins another new term this Autumn, so far, 34 children aged 3-15 years old are receiving project support, among the bereavements are children where both parents have died and the children moved into foster care and those coping with the suicide of a parent.
The impact of bereavement on children can lead to long term mental health issues. Dragonflies offers a safe and secure place for children to express their fears and anxieties and to cope with their loss whilst recognising they are not alone in their grief through the sharing of experiences with others in similar circumstances.
To date, Dragonflies has helped over 2,000 local families cope with their loss.
It is with fundraising and donations such as Rye College's that FSN are able to offer a free service to our local families and to help them through a challenging time and life changing time in their lives."
