Pete's Dragons, specialist suicide bereavement service, knew that with 630 clients across Devon, making sure that they are safe and well and emotionally supported throughout lockdown, closing their doors was not an option.
‘Times are worrying and a little uncertain, says Alison Jordan, Chief Executive, Pete's Dragons.
‘But the PD team have pulled together, embraced new technologies and ways of working, which means we have remained fully operational.
‘This is going to be an enormous challenge for us, we are unable to rely on our normal avenues of funding. Our charity shop is, at present closed and fundraising events are cancelled. So the funding that we have received through Torbay Lottery has been a real lifeline. We’d like to thank everyone that is supporting us from the bottom of our hearts. You are helping us to continue to support those most in need in the community, at a time when they need it the most.
‘Our aim is to do everything in our power to ensure that anyone who needs our help gets it, when they need it, how they need it and as often as they need it.
‘We ask that if you are financially able to do so, please continue to support us through the Torbay Lottery, and, if you are able, please consider buying another ticket.’
