Creditreform supports local bereavement charity Edward’s Trust
Birmingham based Creditreform UK, are proud to be supporting local charity Edward’s Trust this year. The charity’s holistic family bereavement services provide a lifeline to children, young people, parents and carers across the West Midlands facing the death of a loved one.
Edward’s Trust was set up in 1989 by Peter and Hilary Dent in memory of their son Edward, who sadly died aged 7. In addition to pre-bereavement support and counselling, Edward’s Trust provides wellbeing therapies, respite bereavement care retreats and arrange support groups and social activities to help support all members of the family affected by bereavement. In support of the charity and in a bid to help raise money to fund their services, Creditreform will be attending a number of events organised by the Trust over the next few months.
Talking of Creditreform’s support of Edward’s Trust this year, Phil Hemmings, Managing Director explains “As a fan of spicy food, and very much enjoyed the Chicago Spice evening held by the Trust. A mix of beautifully prepared cuisine originating from the Moghul Era of India was paired with some great tasting spirits from across the pond. I was able to try some new Indian dishes which surpassed anything I could ever whip up in the kitchen! A few competitive members of the Creditreform team are also planning to attend the Edward’s Trust Charity Golf Day in at Warwickshire Golf and Country Club in July. We’ve heard the annual event is always enjoyed by all who take part.” He adds, “The team and I are passionate about supporting Edward’s Trust who do a tremendous job in supporting children, parents and siblings with the challenges of losing a loved one. The support offered to these families is often a lifeline and as a community it’s important we support the Trust to continue providing these much-needed services.”
