Mark made such a positive impact on so many lives during each and every day of his own life that we want this charity to honour his memory.
Why we set up Made A Mark
We hope that our experiences of navigating the stormy waters of grief together can help others who find themselves walking this path in our shoes.
The charity is a way for us to help other families take opportunities that were missed for us, by providing memory boxes and supporting materials to acute hospitals and hospices, which can be given to children and their families following a loss. We can also provide funding to train acute hospital staff in supporting bereaved children
We also work alongside other local charities to fund short breaks and special days out for bereaved children and their families, so that they can start making new memories alongside their precious existing ones.
