The Bereavement Counselling Service is only partially funded by the Clinical Commissioning Group. The Friends were formed to raise much needed funds to cover the shortfall in funding, and thus enable more people to benefit from the services of the BCS.

Presently the Friends are a small group of volunteers who work together to raise funds for the BCS by holding various functions, these range from small suppers to larger functions.

Some of the events organised by the Friends are:-
Cream teas, suppers and lunches both in restaurants and in our homes
Black tie event with an auction, with the Military Wives Choir
Jazz supper overlooking the sea on Midsummer’s Day in glorious weather.
Sponsored 150 mile coastal walk
Posh Frocks and fashion shows
Recently we held a very successful Women’s Wellbeing Day.
