Bringing joy at Nelson’s Journey

"I first saw this boy in an area where several families were enjoying their lunches. I knelt down near a group and there was mum, gran, and two young boys, eight and ten years old. They were delighted to be able to make a fuss of my Lacee as they were sad at losing their grandad.

Later I moved to an area where people could write their memories on a card. The older boy came to me with this card (image), which he did not want to put on the line but wanted me to have! I hadn’t even seen this family heading towards me to the memory tent, so I was totally surprised when this little boy was standing in front of us wanting to give me his card. I asked him if he wanted to put it on the line but he said he wanted me to have it. I said thank you and told him I would treasure it and put it in a book I have showing Lacee’s work."

Nelson's Journey is a Charity that supports children and young people in Norfolk who have experienced the loss of a significant person.

 

We are always looking to recruit more volunteers.
