Since our last update in May, by email and at the Open Evening at Weston Village Hall, we have paid for 20 victims from all parts of the country to attend a specialist-run weekend retreat near Crewe and also for the setting up of three new support groups, one based in London and two in Scotland. We continue, of course, to help those families referred to us by Police, Homicide Caseworkers or Victim Support Officers. We have now helped more than 160 families in a variety of ways, distressed families from Inverness to Bournemouth. Since our visits earlier in the year to Scotland Yard, we have been invited to address Homicide Caseworkers and Counsellors in Rugby, Family Liaison Co-ordinators in Aberdeen and The Rotary Club of Glasgow – knowledge of our work is spreading.
The wonderful amount of money raised at the Stafford and the Glasgow Moira Fund Autumn Balls means we can continue to help others traumatically bereaved by the murder of a loved one.
We are grateful for the support of all those who make this possible.
