Christmas Appeal 2018

Message from Heather

It’s that time of year again. The red of the pohutakawa budding against an almost perfect blue sky. At work we look forward to our end of year celebrations, colleagues chat about what they are buying their loved ones for Christmas. The shops are full of Christmas decorations. Everything, everywhere reminding us that Christmas is just around the corner.

Unfortunately this is not always the season of glad tidings of comfort and joy for everyone.

After a suicide, a bereavement, a serious diagnosis, a significant loss or life change of any kind, the holidays can be a time of dread. The pain of sitting down to Christmas dinner when a loved one is missing from the table can be an unbearable reminder of your loss. Our rangatahi may be mourning the loss of friends and class mates. Our friends, whānau and colleagues may be facing bereavements and struggles they don’t want to talk about.
