Clockwise Credit Union has awarded £1000 from its community grant fund to the Leicestershire-based charity – Bodie Hodges Foundation. The Bodie Hodges Foundation is a charity that supports families bereaved of a child and the grant will go towards the purchase of Bodies House.
The need for this service is increasing, so Bodies House needs to have a well-equipped base as the charity grows.
Ruth Johnson from the Bodie Hodges Foundation said, “the property has space for us to expand offer to bereaved families offering more workshop led groups as well as drop-in and social activities.”
Commenting on the grant funding, Elaine Godber, Community Development Officer at Clockwise Credit Union said: “Thank you Lucy & the Bodie Hodges Foundation team for sharing with such professionalism and empathy Nick & Donna’s story of creating this charity in memory of their much loved son Bodie.
“Nick & and Donna’s compassion and resilience to help others on their grief journey and the instant calming well-being ambience on entering Bodie Hodges Foundation Centre are both inspiring and heartwarming, thank you Lucy & Ruth for reaching out for our support.”.
