A social evening for people who are separated or divorced or a single parent will run in Carnforth in the run up to Christmas.
The ‘Surviving the Holidays’ session, which is free, will be run by Carnforth and Lunesdale Divorce Care, a friendly, caring group of people who walk alongside each other through one of life’s most difficult experiences.
The event will reveal how the whole family can rediscover a happy Christmas holiday. Adults will receive practical advice, support and encouragement.
There will also be a video, refreshments and a chance to hear from others who are dealing with marital breakup this holiday season. Their children can enjoy some festive fun at a Christmas party, in the same venue but separate from the adults, plus an opportunity to talk about some of the challenges that they face.
“Christmas is very much family-focused yet for those undergoing separation and divorce this can be a lonely, stressful and depressing time," explains Heidi Boardman, from Divorce Care. "But it doesn’t have to be like this. We have run previous ‘Surviving the Holidays’ events and feedback from them has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Attendees can also find out about the 13 week Divorce Care course which will begin on 6th January 2014 in Carnforth at The Salvation Army.
• ‘Surviving the Holidays’ takes place at The Salvation Army, Preston Street, Carnforth, on Monday 9th December from 7.00 to 9.00pm.Admission free. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Allan or Sue Ellershaw on 01524 730642
