2019 will be an eventful year as we celebrate our 21st birthday.
The 21 day countdown to the birthday party begins on 9th January 2019

As part of our partnership work with the City & East London Bereavement Service, a new monthly loss and bereavement group starts in the New Year.

With much to look forward to, we hope that you will be as excited about the future for Zacchaeus as we are.

On behalf of everyone at Zacchaeus - a very happy Christmas and a peaceful 2019
