Staff at PCH have raised a fantastic amount for Jeremiah’s Journey

Holding a Christmas cake sale and raffle last Friday, the staff have managed to raise over £900 for a local charity that provides free support for children, young people, and their parents or carers who have or are about to experience the death of someone close to them.

Jeremiah Bear will continue to work with PCH staff to raise money and support the charity through a series of fundraising events.

Laura Goodchild, Fundraising Team Leader for Jeremiah’s said: “We’re really pleased to be working in partnership with a large organisation like PCH as all the staff are on board with supporting us which they have shown by raising such a fantastic amount of money for us on Friday.”

Jay Vickers, Communications Officer said: “We’ve been raising money all year for Jeremiah’s Journey and everyone at PCH and PCH Manufacturing have really got behind the fundraising efforts.

“We want to do what we can to support Jeremiah’s as it’s such a fantastic cause doing great work across the city for children, teenagers, parents and professionals. The money that we raise will hopefully be put towards providing high quality support for children who have experienced or are anticipating the death of someone close to them.

Director of Corporate Services and Manufacturing Gill Martin said: “It’s great to be working with such a fantastic charity. Jeremiah’s feels like a natural choice as they help local families and have many years of experience working with children, young people and families who are grieving.”      

Jeremiah’s Journey was established in 1996 by four professionals who wanted to use their skills to help local children through a difficult life experience. Jeremiah Bear was born when Dr Sheila Cassidy, one of the founders of the charity had a great love of teddy bears and using their universal appeal wrote a story about a family of bears to help children of all ages explore the journey through grief.
