Blythe House Hospice
A donation to BBC Children in Need helps provide bereavement counselling for children and young people across the UK.
Children in Need supports Blythe House Hospice which offers counselling and play therapy to bereaved children and young people. Blythe House helped Rickshaw Challenge rider Liv after her father died last year. Liv found it hard to deal with his death from pancreatic cancer, she felt isolated, upset and she began to lose her confidence. At Blythe House she found a place to talk about her feelings and developed techniques to work towards a more positive future. One year on Liv still grieves for her father but believes that counselling helped her through some very dark times.
Your sponsored ride for Children in Need will enable projects like Blythe House Hospice help other children and young people like Liv.
