Raising funds for those little things
One of our brilliant housing workers, Isabella Cross, ran an extremely successful fundraising night called Raise the Disco recently at the Canteen bar in Stokes Croft, Bristol with around 300 people attending raising nearly £1000.
Raise the Disco is Isabella’s brainchild set up to raise money for a new fund to help with people’s mental health recovery in small ways. Sylvia’s Fund, named after Isabella’s Nan, will grant small awards to Second Step clients to spend on small things to help with their recovery and wellbeing. This could be as simple as a meal out or some new paint brushes.
Isabella said: “My Nan has always taught me it’s the little things that make the greatest difference, and I feel this fund shows Second Step’s core values of recovery, hope and courage”.
Isabella is planning more Raise the Disco events. Keep in touch at www.second-step.co.uk/latest-news or search Raise the Disco on Facebook.
