“The support provided by Nelson’s Journey gives children the chance to smile again,” she said.

“The support my son has received will help him throughout the rest of his childhood and into his adult life.

“I was inspired by his courage, to do something so that others can continue to receive this vital bereavement support to bring back smiles long into the future.”

She added she would also be making a donation to the RNLI, after support they had previously provided her.
