Fundraising supports bereaved Peterborough families - 24 Apr 17

Axiom staff pictured presenting Michelle King from Little Miracles with the fundraising cheque. Staff at Axiom Housing Association participated in activities including walking, swimming, climbing and dancing to raise funds for training two bereavement counsellors to support local families who have lost a child.

Axiom Housing Association chose the Little Miracles Charity based at The Spinney, Hartwell Way in the city, as its charity of the year for 2016/17. The charity works with families and their children who have additional needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions.

Since April last year employees have raised £648.27 by holding events as part of its Every Step Counts’ wellbeing campaign, dress down days, crowdfunding and donations.

Kim Whitsey, Outreach Service Manager for Axiom, said: “As part of Every Step Counts, we swam, walked, climbed, danced, canoed, sailed and exercised our way to achieve an amazing 12,969.26 miles, in order to raise money for Little Miracles.

Following a recent cheque presentation the charity’s founder and CEO, Michelle King, said: “I am so humbled to see how much Axiom’s staff raised for our charity Little Miracles.  

“The money will train two bereavement counsellors who will work with the families we support who have lost a child. This will make a huge difference to dozens and dozens of people’s lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

The charity currently supports 8,000 children and their families. Since last October 31 children have died, which is why funding to support bereaved families is so vital and important.
