WOW! - Feeing overwhelmed by generosity of you all.... Thank-you so much!
I know many have already very generously given to Ruth and Tony Palmer following the loss of their Son (my Nephew) Jethro Courage last year. As a family we all remain very grateful to the support we have received from friends and family.

The funds that Ruth and Tony received enabled them to organise trips away - make new memories as a family and adapt to the new 'shape' of life whilst creating space to remember Jethro away from everyday life.

This inspired Ruth and Tony to set up a charity that would enable them to offer similar financial support to bereaved children families in a 'therapy through theme park' initiative, providing others the opportunity to have fun, make memories whilst remembering their special person that has died.

To find out more about this amazing new charity, please visit the website:
