We are really pleased to be announcing our Woolly Hugs’ Christmas fundraiser for 2013. We hope that you will be able to help us in some way. Our thead on Mumnset is here, do join us.
Winston’s Wish are an amazing charity who help bereaved children re-adjust to life after the death of a parent or sibling, offering practical support and guidance. Winston’s Wish have helped many families within our Woolly Hugs and Mumsnet communities, and we would very much like to do something now to help them. To read more about the work they do, see here
