Our Community Coordinator, Lesley Hodgson, in partnership with Marie Curie would like to set up some Bereavement Cafes or support groups in Merthyr Tydfil.

Full training will be provided via Marie Curie in two, three and a half hour sessions.

Sharon, from Marie Curie explains “Marie Curie supports people who have been bereaved by any terminal illness not just Cancer. I don’t think people realise that”. Each café needs 2 or 3 volunteers.

“We would ideally love to have one in the North of the borough, one in the South and one in the town centre, if enough volunteers can be found”, says Lesley.

To find out more about what would be involved. Contact Lesley on 07580866547.


The session will take place at the Integrated Children’s Centre on the 8th June from 9.45am – 2.30pm.

The Big Help Out is a national opportunity to get more people involved in volunteering by encouraging people to take part in introductory volunteering activities on the 8th May bank holiday. The campaign is being led by a number of UK charities including NSPCC, British Red Cross, Scouts, St John’s ambulance and many more.

The day is about encouraging more people to try volunteering by helping out in their local area and aims to inspire them to get into volunteering in the long-term.

If your organisation is able to arrange volunteering activities for the bank holiday weekend, make sure you list them on
