What is Seahorse Stroll?

Seahorse Stroll is a time for children and young people to come together to know that they are not alone in experiencing grief.

The experienced bereavement support team from the St Wilfrid's Hospice Seahorse Project team will run this event, in its new location of Princes Park.

Children will be able to play games, enjoy a picnic and paint pebbles in memory of loved ones, before having a chance to lay down their pebbles and remember that it is ok to miss their loved ones.

Children must be accompanied by up to two adults, who wil be responsible for them during the event.

How it works

You’re just a few steps away from joining us for this year's Seahorse Stroll, here's what you need to do.

1. Register

Register your child or children, and make sure you register yourself too – it’s quick and easy to do! Just enter your details, pick their t-shirt size and pay at the checkout.

2. Raise funds if you can

This year we've introduced optional fundraising for our Seahorse Strollers. Your fundraising page is created during registration and is simple and easy to use.

3. Paint pebbles to remember

Come along for games, picnic and pebble painting in the park, before a short stroll to lay down your pebble and remember your loved one.

What is the Seahorse Project?

We offer short-term bereavement-focused counselling support to any bereaved child in our catchment area (Seaford, Hailsham, Uckfield, Heathfield, Pevensey and Eastbourne).

When someone who is important to us dies, it can leave an empty space in our lives and it is natural to experience strong or mixed feelings. It can sometimes impact on our concentration when we are trying to study, affect our sleep, change the relationships we have with others and cause feelings that might be new to us.

The Seahorse Project is kindly funded by Children in Need.
