    Weʼve raised £2,050 to help fund the on-going work at Johnny's Happy Place

    Kettering, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 18th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Johnny's Happy Place (JHP) was set up following the suicide of our friend, son and brother Johnny Mackay in 2014. JHP was created with Johnny in mind and has turned into a refuge and sanctuary for many people in Kettering. A weekend happy café with "pay what you can" food and drink; free art workshops; "pay what you can" hair cuts and free drop-in counselling where no referral is needed. We welcome anyone and everyone. We're simply a happy weekend café where you can sit and read for a few hours, have endless cups of tea or talk to someone if you are feeling a bit lost. We are entirely self funded and rely on people raising money for us and raising funds ourselves. It costs a lot to run our little place and pay for our two counsellors every Saturday and we want to keep it going. It's entirely staffed by volunteers and every penny goes towards the running of JHP.

    Our main annual fundraisers for the last three years have been our Summer Fete and Christmas Craft Fair but this year we thought we'd try something extra. On Saturday July 28th Johnny's sister Charlotte and mother Denise, along with two of JHP's wonderful volunteers Linda and Wendy are going to abseil down the lift tower in Northampton. At 127m high it is the largest permanent abseiling structure in the world *gulp.

    Why the hell not hey. Who doesn't love heights (me...).

    If you are able to sponsor us a few quid we'd be so grateful. We all do this in Johnny's name in order to help other people and to show them that they aren't alone in this world.

    Thanks a million
