Grief & Loss: A Journey of Hope in Poole, Dorset

Grief & Loss: A Journey of Hope in Poole, Dorset

26th October 2019 - 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.

During this day we will explore what happens when we experience significant losses in life - not just the bereavement ...

Although we have been in Whitehill Chase in Bordon for 30 years, not many people know what a place of peace and tranquility we have. Our mission is for ‘Healing and Wholeness for All’ and we want to open up our facilities to many more people in and around the Bordon area.

As part of the Bordon and Whitehill Healthy Town initiative, we are exploring with local health practitioners ways in which our house and grounds can be used for the benefit of the community.

We plan to turn a small dining room into a cafe lounge, so that we can support our local GP's and healthcare professionals by being able to support patients under the local 'social perscription' practice. We have the support from local community leaders who will be joining us in the cafe, and local Macmillan Nurses want to use our cafe and lounge area for meeting clients.
We also intend to offer a ‘Listening Service’, a non-directive approach for individuals who just need someone to listen to their concerns, this will be available in the community cafe.

We require funding for refurbishment of the dining area and also to upgrade our kitchen. With additional funding, we will improve our grounds and install 'Reflection Huts' and small community garden area. 

We need your vote behind us and it only takes a minute to do so.
