RASS NEED YOUR VOTE

River And Sea Sense have been nominated for the Lloyds Bank Community Fund.  We have the opportunity to win from £500 to £3000 depending upon YOUR VOTE.

RASS has reached its target now of speaking to over 100.000 children in schools re water safety since the drowning of Christopher Turnbull – Debbie’s son at Capel Curig in North Wales in August 2006.  This funding will enable Debbie/RASS to further educate up to 3000 more young people and support a new pilot project to help educate parents as to how to get the water safety message out to their children.

Last Friday 29th August sadly another young boy was tragically lost at a local beach on Anglesey, he was on holiday with his parents.

Walking Back To Happiness Fundraiser

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Sunday Feb 27th 11.30-1.30

Llandudno Pier to Colwyn Bay Pier

This event is to raise funds for an online support network for parents who have lost a child and young people who have lost a friend. A tribute to your loved ones and to raise funds to create this unique service. We will have online interactive support – advice and guidance – recommended reading – forum – tribute pages – blogs – plus setting up meetings initially in North Wales and venturing further afield. This will be a totally unique support network that I hope will become a special place to go when times are tough.

Siince I lost my own son to drowning I have been on a huge journey and am still – however I feel that by helping others to cope and telling my own story – will help them find a place within their hearts and minds where they feel they are free frm some of the pain of loss.

I am asking for a £5 registration fee and sponsorship minimum of £50 – but the more we raise the sooner we can all help eachother.
