Amelia lost her father aged 12 after he was killed in an accident. Winston’s Wish supported Amelia and her family following the loss of her father and Amelia became a Young Ambassador for the charity in a bid to give something back. Describing her experience with Winston’s Wish, Amelia said:
“I have gained so much from the support that they have given me. I suffered severe anxiety after Dad’s accident and used to worry about everyone I loved thinking something bad was going to happen to them. Kate, one of the Senior Practitioners, gave me strategies to help manage these feelings.
Winston’s Wish has helped me realise that anyone can lose a parent at any age and that I’m not the only person. By being a Young Ambassador not only do I want to give something back to the charity, but I want to be able to help the charity in gaining support for what they do.”
