Christmas tribute helps grieving kids
Keighley-based funeral directors David and Adele Gallagher are lighting up their customers’ Christmas with a tree at their West Yorkshire headquarters, Airedale House.
All of the families cared for by them and their team throughout 2019 are being remembered throughout the festive season, with each white light on the tree representing a deceased person they have cared for throughout the year, as they all understand what a difficult time this may be for loved ones left behind.
In their memory, the company has donated £1,000 to the Lord Mayor’s Appeal Charity, Child Bereavement UK, which supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child faces bereavement.
The trust was founded in 1994 and in 2018 provided bereavement support to more children, young people, parents and families than ever before.
Adele said: “We know only too well the issues relating to bereavement for both young and old, and although we can support them during the short time that we are part of their lives, knowing that a charity such as Child Bereavement UK can guide them through the next stages of grief gives us great peace of mind.”Tags: Adele Gallagher, Airedale House, Child Bereavement UK, Christmas, community, David Gallagher, grief, Keighley, West Yorkshire
