Each academic year we nominate a charity which our Academy supports through fundraising events and activities. For the year 2019/20 our nominated charity is Once Upon a Smile.
Once Upon a Smile was founded in 2011, by Daniel Jillings and Danny Miller to provide emotional and practical support to bereaved families after it became apparent that there was a lack of support for families after the death of a loved one.
Their charity is the only bereavement charity in the UK to offer a variety of support to families through such a difficult time. They understand that families are often left to grieve alone with no, or little support available and this can often have a devastating impact on family life and children.
