In a bid to change a life this Christmas, Signs Express has donated enough money to fund a child's whole support experience with Nelson's Journey, including a two day therapeutic residential weekend and 1 to 1 support.

Nelson's Journey, a charity dedicated to supporting bereaved children and young people throughout Norfolk, was founded in 1997 in the county. Since its establishment, the charity has helped thousands of children between the age of 0 and 17 who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life. This year alone, the team at Nelson's Journey has helped over 600 children across Norfolk deal with their grief. Signs Express, a franchised network of signs & graphics businesses situated across the UK and Ireland, is headquartered in Norwich and is a long-term supporter Nelson's Journey. This year, the company's HQ decided to donate its Christmas card money – topped up with a little extra – to a good cause. The £522 that the team donated is enough to fund a full assessment into a child's bereavement needs, attendance on a therapeutic residential weekend and ongoing one-to-one follow up work. Craig Brown, Managing Director of the Signs Express group, highlighted his pride in supporting such an important local charity, 'Everyone has been affected at one point or another by bereavement, but it must be unimaginably difficult for children and teenagers. The work that Nelson's Journey does, gives these young people a solid support structure and ensures that they never feel alone, which is crucial to their well-being. We are proud to support Nelson's Journey and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.' Signs Express HQ has been supporting Nelson's Journey for four years and have so far raised just over £6,000 for the cause. With the ambition to continue supporting the organisation for years to come, Signs Express and Nelson's Journey have formed a close relationship and a passion for supporting local children and teens to manage their grief effectively. Any money donated to the cause is gratefully received and goes a long way to helping those in need. Gena Moore, Corporate Funding and Marketing Officer told us why the support was so important, 'We were so surprised and thrilled to receive such an amazing contribution from Signs Express at such a difficult time of year. This year, 470 children and young people in Norfolk will be experiencing their first Christmas after the death of a parent. The support given to us by Signs Express really will help to change the life of one of these bereaved children, helping them move forward positively with their lives. It's thanks to this amazing local business support that helps us keep up with the growing demands on our service.' If you wish to donate to this fabulous cause, there are plenty of ways to do so, take a look here for inspiration: http://www.nelsonsjourney.org.uk/donate.aspx
