CONGRATULATIONS: The Children’s Grief Centre in Limerick has won the National Lottery Good Cause of the Year award - they won €25,000 for the award, plus an additional €10,000 for its category win.. The charity, founded in 2009 by Sr Helen Culhane - which supports children who suffer loss from bereavement, divorce or separation - won the overall award at an awards ceremony in Dublin. Sr Helen said, she was overjoyed to receive this reward. She said, children often find it difficult to express their feelings through language so they are allowed to choose their own form of expression. The impact of this work with children is incredible. As a result of attending the Children's Grief Centre it has been shown that children are happier, more calm, and have less feelings of anger, guilt and sadness. Located on the South Circular Road, it is a free and voluntary organisation that supports children between the ages of four and eighteen. Since it started it has provided a space and place for around 1,000 children. You might remember, Sr Helen also won the 2017 Limerick Person of the Year award for her work with the charity.
