A Bereavement Or Loss Drop-in (BOLD) group has been launched in Sleaford.

It is based at Halcyon Relaxation and Therapy in North Parade, Sleaford and was launched last Tuesday.

Sarah Allsopp who runs the group said: “We were pleased to welcome existing clients and friends and were amazed by the volume of telephone calls and emails from local people expressing their support and interest.”

Anyone who has suffered bereavement or a physical loss can call in any time between 5.30 and 7pm on a Tuesday evening where they can socialize with others who have experience of similar circumstances or chat to either a bereavement support worker or a counsellor.

The service is totally free and open to people of all ages.

Susan said: “We appreciate the effort and courage it takes for those grieving to take the step to come into a new environment, but they can be sure of a warm welcome.”
