Kicking off 2024 with incredible support

January 2024

Thanks so much to everyone who so generously supported WAY’s fundraising campaigns last year – raising vital funds to help our charity provide the services that are such a lifeline to our members. 2024 is already off to a flying start...

Walking for WAY

We’re delighted that seven of our members and three supporters are taking part in the London Winter Walk for WAY next weekend. 

Xavier is a Winter Walk participant who shared his reasons behind the fundraiser: 

"Following my wife Claudia's death last April, I was introduced by the hospice where Claudia died to WAY Widowed and Young.

WAY has been a godsend for me - it has given me the opportunity to talk to and meet people who are on the same journey. So many friends, family and others have supported me in all sorts of different ways and I will always be so grateful for that. However, I have found a great deal of comfort in talking to people who instinctively understand the impact of being bereaved.

"To be able to say what I'm really feeling to people who don't need an explanation. Just to hear that others experience the same emotions has been an immense comfort."

I am trying to raise money for WAY, both as a way of saying thank you for all the support that it has given me since Claudia died, and to help WAY to reach and support more younger people who have been bereaved. I know how important that support is.
