About Reuben’s Retreat
Reuben’s Retreat is a charity which was born in memory of Reuben Michael Graham who tragically passed away aged 23 months.
The primary goal of Reuben’s Retreat is to create a sanctuary that will be a home-from-home for families coping with the serious illness of a child, providing respite breaks and the chance to build happy memories.
Every step you take on this amazing challenge will raise vital funds to help this charity in their mission to relieve the distress of families who have suffered the bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting/threatening illness.
