raised of £2,000 target by 41 supporters

    Weʼve raised £785 to fund 10 vulnerable children 5 -11 struggling with anxiety, bereavement, domestic violence, Mental Health issues to receive Counselling

    Halifax, UK
    Funded on Wednesday, 31st July 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I am raising funds to support 10 children age 5-11 years who need our counselling service at Noah's Ark Centre but have no access to support or funding.
    Counselling for children offers a safe and confidential space to play and express freely and openly to someone who isn't a family member.
    These children may have low self esteem, are anxious and/or stressed, have suffered some form of trauma, experienced or witnessed domestic violence, have parents who are struggling with their own mental health issues, children with learning disabilities, and children who have suffered a bereavement.
    The money I raise will enable us to give 10 children, 12 sessions of Therapeutic Play Counselling at Noah's Ark Centre or at the child's primary school.
    This is some feedback from children who have attended our service:
    "I don't feel as angry anymore" "I can talk about my mum now" "Thank you I have loved coming to Noah's Ark" "I can face the bullies now" "It's okay to cry"

    So family, friends and colleagues Please support me in this epic swim by donating now.....I will keep you all updated on my adventure of the deep sea.

      Just to keep all you amazing supporters updated re: my 'epic swim' we had to come home without achieving our crossing due to bad windy weather. We were offered by our pilot to cross on Monday morning at 2am with the advice we would all be sick, he would have to help us up the ladder and eventually turn us around. As a team we declined his offer (: So we have three further options dependant upon weather change and if the soloist and another team take up the first offer. All very technical. Possibly next week, October or June 2019. THANK YOU

    I have very recently mastered the technique of front crawl with the help of a swim coach. This will be the biggest achievement of my life to swim the Mount Everest of swimming the English Channel in a relay team. The Channel is 21+ miles depending on the tide and current .
