Merseyside Police Federation Charitable Trust has been assisting the community of Merseyside since we were established as a registered charity in 2006.
On Thursday 7th November 2019 the Merseyside Police Federation organised this year’s black tie charity fund raising event at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Liverpool. The evening was supported and attended by serving and retired police officers, partners and sponsors. Chief Constable Andy Cooke (Merseyside Police) also supported the event and gave up his valuable time for this very deserving charity. Raising over £15,000 on the night the funds will make a massive difference to the lives of so many children.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL
About Our Lost Love Years (O.L.L.Y)
How it all began...
Chantel Taylor was tragically murdered aged 27. Her son Joseph and his siblings were left distraught and feeling unable to talk about the loss of their mum to their relatives for fear of causing further upset. They tried to carry on as normal but found it increasingly difficult.
Joseph spoke out to his nan Jean Taylor and asked for a place where children who have experienced the loss a loved one due to acts of murder or violence could come together and talk with the same understanding and feelings.
OLLY now has over 300 children using our service and we hope to reach out to more children in need every day.
Following the loss of a loved one children are often left devastated, feeling isolated, confused and they might be unable to communicate with their friends and family.
Not being able to talk about their loss can cause children to hold their feelings and emotions locked inside which does not help the child to deal with their grief and loss. This is where Our Lost Love Years (O.L.L.Y.) can step in and help.
O.L.L.Y. is a place where children can meet and make new friends as we have children welcomed from communities spread across Merseyside and Wirral as we believe that children are often more willing to talk to other children about how they are feeling. They can share their emotions during our various activities and days out. This helps each child with their grieving process.
Special thanks to Frank, the very friendly doorman the Crown Plaza Liverpool. What a gentleman!!!
