Kids' exhibition at hospice
7:00am Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
YOUNG people who have suffered from the loss of a loved one are displaying art work in a special exhibition.
The Yo-Yo Project is being run by Farleigh Hospice’s Children’s Bereavement Service, which helps children through bereavement.
The artwork was unveiled on Tuesday, September 10 at Farleigh Hospice’s Art Gallery, in North Court Road, Chelmsford and will be on display throughout September and October.
The artwork is a result of work the children have been doing with Farleigh Hospice’s counsellors.
The Yo-Yo Project helps children between four and 18 with tailor-made support for each individual case. In the past 12 months the bereavement service provided 1,287 one-to-one sessions to help support children, young people and adults.
Mark Cobbin, bereavement services team leader, said: “The children and young people who utilise Farleigh Hospice’s Yo-Yo Project are currently coping with some very difficult and emotional circumstances which obviously results in them creating some emotional and very personal work.
“Each piece of work has an association to someone significant in their lives who is either seriously ill or deceased.
“It’s great to have this opportunity for the children and members of their families to get together to share and discuss their work, along with everyone else’s.”
