Mary Berry is helping to raise awareness of #MakeforMum for Child Bereavement UK in the run up to Mother’s Day.

Mary is a patron of the charity which supports families and educates professionals when a child grieves and when a child dies.

Child Bereavement UK’s Fundraising Officer Seb Farrell said:

“We know from families we have supported at Child Bereavement UK that Mother’s Day can be a particularly difficult time when a mum, dad, grandparent, baby or child in their family has died. By taking part in #MakeforMum and fundraising for Child Bereavement UK, you can help the charity to reach many more families who may need bereavement support around occasions such as Mother’s Day and throughout the year.”

Mothering Sunday falls on 11th March this year, but you can hold your own #MakeforMum event whenever suits you best. From creating a special meal, making tea, baking, making candles or cards, to holding a fundraising cake sale for friends or colleagues, you are invited to join in, get creative and host your own #MakeforMum event.

Share your pictures using the #MakeforMum hash tag or text MUMS02 £10 to 70070 to donate and make a real difference.
