Our Rotary Club was privileged to have Alex Whitney speak to the members about the Compassionate Friends organisation. This wonderful group of people are a gathering of people who have lost a child, irrespective of the child’s age at death and the cause of the death, and is an organisation independent of any religious, philosophical or government body.
In presenting Alex spoke of her personal and tragic loss, and that Compassionate Friends is a mean that assists people facing similar issues, to be able to talk with like minded people in a special way.
Her talk was very moving and appreciated by the Club. It’s a great organisation that originated in the UK, and has provided a vital means for helping people in similar situations.
