Christmas is a time for joy and celebration but please spare a thought for all those people who are facing a hollow Christmas following bereavement, particularly those who are recently bereaved or who will be bereaved  over the Christmas period.

You are never so alone as when you are in a crowd.

A smiley cheery face can hide a multitude of depression.

Often friends say: “If you need anything just ask.” However, great friends don’t wait to be asked they just do.
