Norfolk's child bereavement charity, Nelson's Journey, has welcomed a strong response from bereaved families to its Purple Picnic campaign this year.

Sarah Moniz, 44, from Norwich is one of those holding a picnic. Her two daughters were referred to Nelson's Journey through their school after their father was diagnosed with cancer and passed away within weeks.

She said: 'Nelson's Journey arranged a Support Worker, Emily, to visit both girls at school and is on hand to support any emotional issues that come up.

'This support has proven it is what has enabled them to settle back into school life.'
