One of our supporters and Bereavement Volunteers, Laura Baron, is currently training for the Manchester Half Marathon. Laura will be running the half marathon in memory of her Grandma and to raise awareness for Cruse.

Cruse Bereavement care provided Laura with support after her Grandma passed away, Laura says:

“I'm choosing to support Cruse as they provided me with invaluable emotional support when my Grandma passed away in 2015.
My Grandma was very special to me and was a major influence in my life. She is the driving force behind everything I do and also the reason I chose to be a BV myself!
Cruse are a vital charity and resource that everyone needs during their loss or Bereavement.

This October 2017 I'll be running in memory of my Grandma "Dotty D" for Cruse and for everyone that's lost someone special to them!”

We would like to thank Laura immensely for this kind act of generosity and wish her the very best of luck with her half marathon run!

For the last few years Cruse Lancashire have developed great relations with Preston Cemetary and Crematorium. This year we have been chosen to receive a donation from the Institute of Cremetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM).
