Triathlon success!

Thanks so much to Max one of our supporters who ran a triathlon for us this month and raised over £1800!  Thanks so much to you Max and to all your sponsors, on behalf of all the children and young people we work with!

Child Parent Relationship Therapy

Our next CPRT courses are going to start on Wednesday 24th April 2024 in North and South Birmingham.  They will run for ten weeks (not half term) on Wednesdays from 10-12pm.  Would you like to know more about supporting your emotionally sensitive child using play therapy skills?  If so, please contact us on 0121 444 5454.

This course does need the commitment of attendance at a weekly workshop and play sessions at home with your child but the rewards are huge.

Jade’s London Marathon 2023!

Well done Jade for completing the London Marathon and in a fantastic time of 5 hours and 27 minutes!  We are so grateful you ran for BTH and you looked great in the tee shirt!

You can read all about Jade’s story here and you can still donate to her fundraising efforts here!  Jade first came in contact with Beyond the Horizon at the age of nine after her Dad died.  She had counselling with Beyond the Horizon at the time and recently got back in touch with us to say she would like to run the London Marathon for us! We were delighted. Well done Jade and massive congratulations from Beyond the Horizon!

Remembering Day 12th March 2022

On Saturday 12th March we hosted a Remembering Day for all the families we have been in contact with who have lost a loved one or were already grieving at the start of the pandemic in 2020.  Many families had missed out on the chance to gather with others to remember their special person or to mark their anniversary due to restrictions.  We took time to remember people’s loved ones through crafts and memory activities and a collective time of quiet, gathered around the beautiful stones everyone had painted.  We also had plenty of food and fun times together including drumming and making slime.  Thank you so much to all the families that came and shared with us, to our great team of volunteers and staff and to the Sir John Middlemore Trust for funding our time together.
