We’re very excited to be sending out our ‘new look’ Kite Magazine this month which includes news and updates about our work, along with stories from our families and supporters. You can download it here. It was a real team effort with design help from Stephen Davies and Oli Green and printing by Full Range Print Solutions – we are delighted with the result. Conscious of the environment, we are moving towards the majority of our future mailings being digital. You can subscribe here. As this was to be our final majority print mailing, we were really pleased to use one of our supporters from BNI Mercury, (an international business networking and referral organisation, within a local network). Full Range Print Solutions based in Halesowen, did a great job for us. They offered a competitive quote, were highly responsive to queries, and did a swift and efficient print run for us resulting in a smart professional publication. Dean Ford from ‘Full Range Print Solutions’ says, ‘I am proud to support Edwards Trust. The help that they gave to my mom and dad when my brother passed away was invaluable. In these troubled times I think it is even more important to support Edwards Trust so that they can carry on with the help and support that is so very needed when losing a loved one.’ Huge thanks to Dean and to Stephen and Oli and to all our volunteers who have stuffed envelopes. #FlyingtheKite
Here is a book recommendation for grieving children - 'Benny's Hat' One of our children’s counsellors helped provide tips on how to talk about bereavement with your child.

#MothersDay can be incredibly difficult for many bereaved people, evoking powerful memories and feelings which are very personal 💜
Over the next week, we will be sharing some of these, and providing ideas which may help you plan your day in a way that is right for you 💛
With children in England returning to school next week, our team share their tips on how to prepare them and you 👉 https://buff.ly/2A9WzTl
