Reuben's Retreat

Reuben’s Retreat was founded on the 23rd August 2012 in memory of a very precious little boy, Reuben Michael Graham who sadly passed away in his Mummy’s loving arms on 21st August 2012, aged 23 months. Reuben’s Retreat’s primary goal is to create a sanctuary in Glossop, Derbyshire that will be a home-from-home for families coping with the serious illness of a child, providing respite breaks and the chance to build happy memories.

Today's #motivationalmonday post is about our amazing supporters.

Without our supporters Reuben's Retreat would be a very different place today, from the beginning we were inundated with offers of help from local people. companies, tradesmen and individuals all wanting to help Nicola to realise her vision.

Whilst we are renovating every saving makes a huge difference, Nicola, Reuben's Mummy always says " everyone has something to bring to Reuben's Retreat"

Skills, materials and services donated or at a discount enables our renovation fund go a little further allowing us to get as much out of every pound as possible.

Do you have a skill, service, product that you can offer? Do you have time that you can donate to our cause? If so please get in touch on 01457 680023.

Thank you to all who have helped so far, we are and will always be #forevergrateful
