On 18th February 2023 JOCA hosted a joint fundraising event for JOCA and the amazing Bodie Hodges Foundation.
We are delighted to say that our lunch was extremely well attended (we had over 100 guests) and enjoyed by all – the perfect way to raise much needed funds and support for two great charities.
A big thank you to all our guests who helped us raise around £1k for each charity.
Who are the Bodie Hodges Foundation?
We are a family who following the death of our beautiful 10-month-old son, Bodie, wanted to offer support to other bereaved families. The death of a child is isolating and lonely and it can be hard to ask for help or know how we want to be supported. We were blessed to be given time away from home to spend time as a family and to show our daughter that life would somehow continue and that out of tragedy comes hope. The Bodie Hodges Foundation was formed in 2012, to support families who have been bereaved of a child of any age and to promote organ donation. Our vision is to give hope to families bereaved of a child by providing a range of services that support grieving families and encourage them to rebuild and remember.
