THE BODIE HODGES FOUNDATION


Join Team Bodie as we take part in the Easter Virtual Balloon Race, launching from Jerusalem Old City on Easter Sunday!

Throughout 2020 and 2021, like many charities, our fundraising income has been severely impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic, and your support is never more needed.

Our Vision is to give hope to families bereaved of a child by providing a range of services that support grieving families and encourage them to rebuild and remember. Through Bodie’s Bereavement service, we provide early emotional therapeutic support to families in their own home. We work with families who have experienced the sudden and unexpected death of a child up to the age 18 within Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland. We work with the whole family, including siblings for up to 18 months, providing support during the darkest time of a family’s grief. We can also provide a stay at Bodie's Boathouse to families residing in the East Midlands, and send out Bodie's Treasured Memory Bags, filled with grief resources to siblings across the UK. We promote Organ Donation and run an education awareness programmes in schools, colleges, universities, and corporate environments. We are proud to provide all our services to families free of charge.

From everyone here at Team Bodie, thank you so much for your support. Please share the link to our fundraising page with your friends, family and work colleagues.

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £12
