Charitable Inspiration with The Good Grief Trust

Charitable Inspiration with The Good Grief Trust

Posted by Charlotte Broadbent | 14 March 2017 | Community Spirit

When style, feel-good makeovers and charity collide; when the sense of belonging and community spirit fuse together to create a shift in peoples well-being and coping mechanisms – that’s when we can really see a boost in recovery from suffering.

Such was the brainchild of Linda Magisitris, who launched the Good Grief Trust Spring Shopping & Fashion event at Hotel du Vin – Cannizaro House on Saturday 11 March, providing well-being treats and support for bereavement sufferers. Her goal is to raise funds for her new initiative to bring together all bereavement charities under one umbrella. Partnering with legendary makeup artist Lee Pycroft and her #MYMakeover team. Groups of bereaved women were given the chance to take time out to receive style and makeover advice to help them reconnect with themselves and experience renewed confidence. Fashion brands such as Millie Manu and Captain Tortue also supported the event with shopping sessions and fashion shows across the afternoon.

From personal experience following the death of her husband from a rare cancer two years ago, Linda believes no-one should be left alone to suffer unnecessarily. We all know people suffer and grieve in different ways, and the Good Grief Trust aims to give specialist and targeted support to individuals by bringing together all bereavement charities under one roof. Their aim is to encourage people to talk about grief in a more honest way, as well as offering inspiration and hope to the bereaved further down the line. One small change can have an immense impact.
