Annual Family Fun Day
For the past 3 years, our primary source of fund raising has been the annual “Hemel Hempstead Family Fun Day” incorporating the Nikki Cross Cup football match played out by Nikki’s Friends and Family alongside celebrity’s and pro-footballers. Hemel Hempstead born Tommy Smith just one of many ex-pros’ to turn out to support our wonderful charity.
“KEEP AIMING” EVENTS
“Keep Aiming” and “Never Give Up” were the words Nikki lived by. It is in the true spirit of Nikki that we hold quarterly fun days called, “Keep Aiming” events to provide children with a day of fun activities and the chance to connect with other children going through a bereavment experience. The days also offer an opportunity for parents and carers to meet and talk to each other which helps create a network of support for themselves.
Therapy and Counselling
It is our intention for 2019 to work with professional, well established 3rd party counselling services to offer the children registered with Nikki’s Wishes the opportunity for a variety of therapeutic services including, group therapy sessions and courses, one to one counselling, parental support workshops including attachment, anxiety and “Circle of Security” programs as well as developing a secure community online forum via this website for people who have attended one of our events or accessed the counselling services.
The nikki’s wishes dream house
It is our 5 year goal to be able to purchase 2 holiday houses in the UK for the purpose of sending our bereaved children on holiday’s and short breaks with their families and carers. We are actively looking for corporate sponsorship to achieve this dream.
