This year we are facilitating our very first young adults adventure day for bereaved siblings. The age category is 18-25 year olds.
We feel that this is something that is missing in our for us young adults.
This is the place of the in between and we can be forgotten. We are expected to move on with our Leaving Cert, college exams, with our nights out and nights in. And we are expected to form relationships both in friendship and in love.
Let us tell you, when your heart is shattered and you are missing someone with all of your being, when you sometimes don’t want to wash your face or eat your Supermacs, when you want to go for a walk because you know it would be good for you but you have zero energy because you are heavy yet empty and drained. It is so hard to be expected to keep going and show any expression on your face, when all you want to do is close your mouth and close your eyes and keep your head down.
It is no wonder we as sisters spent many nights drinking our sorrows on our nights out and not wanting to go home and face the reality. Its hard!
For these reasons and for many, many like them we are offering our first year for young adults.
Our day will begin with Gorge Walking, then lunch and a bit of craic and finishing with a high of guest speaker, the brave and beautiful Sinead Kane. This day is organic, there is no pressure all you do is show up.
The event will be held on April 27th 2019 in Petersburg Outdoor Adventure Centre in Clonbur, Co. Galway. We will begin around 9:30am and finish around 4pm.
If you are interested in being here with us and all the others in this sh*t club to be in then send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0874220000.
We look forward to meeting you all.
With warmth and understanding,
Aishleen, Katie-Anne and Charlotte x x
