Weʼre raising £2,000 to raise money in loving memory of our friend and brother, Chris Lillie, to set up a new mental health support project
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In 2014, we lost our friend, bandmate, and brother, Chris Lillie, to suicide. Since then, we have hosted a few events with his former band to raise money for different projects that meant something to Chris. Now, we want to begin a new chapter and start a new mental health support service that can offer people something different to just counselling or medication. We aim to provide a safe space for people to come and not be ok, and seek the help they need in a less formal way. We would provide skill sessions, anything from learning how to cook for themselves, to learning an instrument or finding a creative outlet. We are currently putting together an action plan that will detail how we can provide these services and more.
