Lexi Proud, managing director for ArrangeMeADate.com told Caterer how she first heard about the charity when her friend was dying from cancer and.she helped looked after her four-year-old son.
"I had no experience of this type of situation so went about searching for information on how to tell a child their parent is dying.
"Winston's Wish have been amazing in their support to little George and my friends family. Sadly, my friend Annie died in January this year so I relied upon the charity so much in how to tell George what had happened and how to deal with a funeral. I just wanted to give something back to them for all of their help and so this is how the ArrangeMeA charity night came about."
"The help from the six chefs has truly been amazing and I cannot thank them enough. Winston's Wish is so small but the work they do outstanding," Proud added.
Winston's Wish, the charity for bereaved children, helps young people re-adjust to life after the death of a parent or sibling. By providing professional assistance before, during and after bereavement they help them to better understand the nature of loss and offer the practical support and guidance that many need in order to cope throughout the grieving process.
