Going the Extra 10k!

Congratulations to Wendy Sherratt and her daughter who completed the British Virgin Sport 10k in London in Sunday 15th July (a very hot day!) They were part of the 40-strong Cruse contingent running across central London, and have raised nearly £400 for South Staffordshire Cruse.

Sponsorship

Soccerpoint Ltd have very kindly paid for Cruse T-shirts. Our volunteers will wear these at our various Bereavement Help points, and they were on show at our Annual Business Meeting on Wednesday 5th September 2018. 

More Grant Success!

Grant Success!

We are delighted that our bid to Lichfield District Council for funding has been successful. This grant will help us to continue to support local people in 2018-19, and we are very grateful to the council for this.
