Four friends raise vital funds for North Somerset mental health services
Four young friends Molly Lees, Dee Connock, Hannah Sharps and Jessica Paul held organised a disco to raise cash for Second Step’s North Somerset Wellbeing Service. The friends collected £535, and were thrilled to be able to help a local charity. Molly Lees said: “We know Christmas is not always a happy time for everyone and can really be a struggle for some people. We wanted to support a local charity where we would know the money was really going to make a difference.”
Rachel Austin, Team Manager at North Somerset Wellbeing Services, said: “This is an incredibly generous donation which will be used to improve the mental health and wellbeing of North Somerset residents.”
Our North Somerset Wellbeing Service supports people aged 18 and over who are experiencing mental health issues in the North Somerset area. The service offers a range of interventions including wellbeing college courses, café discussions, activities including mindfulness, creative writing, art and taster sessions of yoga and tai chi.
