New charity partnership – Grief Encounter

Mar 15, 2021
We are delighted to announce that our chosen charity partner for the next year is Grief Encounter. We will be working hard to fundraise and support their work with bereaved children and young people, including their national helpline, ‘grieftalk’.

One child in every UK classroom will experience the death of someone close by the time they reach 16 years old.  Grief Encounter helps with the confusion, fear, loneliness and pain, providing a lifeline for children and young people to help them cope with free, immediate, one-to-one support.

Michael Stone, our CEO, said: “We are delighted to support this vitally important bereavement charity during these, particularly difficult times. Our fundraising has started, with our teams raising money through participation in the Forget me not walk on Sunday 21 October.  We’ve already raised over £8,000 of our £10,000 target for that event.”

Stone Real Estate has appointed Charity Champions to help inspire our fundraising, and we are planning other events, including an entertainment evening on zoom and a fun Tik Tok competition.

If you would like to help us support Grief Encounter, we have set up a Justgiving page where you can donate to this fantastic charity. Please also visit the Grief Encounter website to find out more about the fantastic work they do.
