'Our aims are to support homeless people and those whose lives have been disrupted by premature bereavement'
For 2015 we supported Joshua Orphan and Communtiy Care and their valuable work helping vulnerable children and their families in Malawi, and we have recently renewed our support for 2016.
We have donated £5,000 to the 'Good Grief' Project.
Jane and Jimmy Edmonds are making a documentary film about the grief of bereaved parents and the continuing bonds they have with their dead child. They are now back home after filming in the USA and Mexico and are beginning the editing process. Jimmy says "Its not just about Life and Death but how to Live with Death - and to live well!"
On the 2nd March this year it was 9 years since we last saw our beautiful and much loved Jessica. And on the 12th of April it was her 23rd birthday.
The JMT owns and manages Jessica's Heart, a former pub in Deptford called The Osborne Arms.
Ashdon Jazz Academy
The JMT is now supporting the Ashdon Jazz Academy. This is a new charity set up by a bereaved mum in memory of her daughter who ended her own life, aged 14.
Many teenagers are struggling with depression, low self-esteem, negative body images, self-harming, eating disorders, bullying, the pressure of premature sexualisation, gang sexual exploitation and other emotional difficulties
The Ashdon Jazz Academy aims to provide these female teenagers with a dedicated trained female mentor.
