The SEL Sands Newsletter

We’ve begun to publish a newsletter, containing articles related to recent fundraising efforts, upcoming events and details of what else SEL Sands is doing with its funds.

The first issue was released on 5th December 2016, and if you didn’t receive a copy you can sign up to get them in the future – just visit our Mailing List page.

Users of Hotmail and Gmail may find that our emails are automatically placed into a ‘Promotions’ folder or similar.

A copy of the first issue is attached here, and we would welcome any feedback you may have.

Urgent Call For Volunteers

After leading South East London Sands for more than 15 years, Julia and Tracey now feel it is time for them to step down. We are immensely grateful to them for the time and energy they have devoted to supporting bereaved families in south east London.

To continue providing this support, we now need more volunteers to train as befrienders, who will lead and facilitate the monthly support group meetings on a rota basis.

Sands will provide training, and Julia and Tracey have committed to support and mentor new befrienders during a transitionary period in early 2016. Meanwhile, a steering group is planning the future direction of SEL Sands.

If you are interested in supporting bereaved families by becoming a befriender, please contact us for further details by Saturday 14 November. Please do consider taking on this valuable role, as the monthly support group may have to be withdrawn unless enough volunteers come forward.
