Peter Alan raise more than £4,000 for 2 Wish Upon A Star
One of Wales’ leading estate agencies has raised more than £4,000 for 2 Wish Upon A Star, after choosing them as their official charity partner for 2017.
Born out of the tragic and sudden death of Rhian and Paul Burke’s son, George, a week after his first birthday, where before Rhian could process what had happened, she then lost her husband just 5 days later. Feeling let down by a system that wasn’t there for her, she decided she would change things for other families.
2 Wish Upon A Star was born out of a desire to improve bereavement services in Wales, in particular to support parents when they lose their child suddenly and traumatically.
Throughout 2017 Peter Alan staff and customers participated in various activities to reach the total including a coffee mornings, dress down days, raffles, Christmas Jumper Day and running challenges.
Andrew Barry, Peter Alan’s Managing Director commented “The charity does terrific work supporting parents and family members, should the unimaginable happen. They provide care in a variety of ways, from memory boxes, immediate bereavement support, family rooms in hospitals, to counselling and alternative therapy.
We’re proud to have raised over £4,000 through a variety of activities through the year. I would like to thank everyone who supported us through the year to help raise funds for this amazing charity.”
