Weʼre raising £1,000 to support selected charities and creative engagement projects that have a specific focus on mental health and wellbeing.
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.
As we look forward to the easing of lockdown, one group of people will be forced to wait months before their worries diminish. Recent research* has shown that 93% of people in the live events industry have seen their income fall over the last year due to COVID-19. Many have lost their jobs and, with little or no immediate prospect of income or government support, are experiencing stress, anxiety and depression.
For this campaign, we have partnered with EventWell, the event industry’s charitable social enterprise, which is providing much needed support for event professionals whose mental health is suffering right now.
Our aim: to raise £1,000. This money will be channelled where it’s most needed:
• £15 could buy a child’s birthday gift
• £50 could provide a grocery shopping voucher
• £65 could pay for one hour’s professional counselling/therapy.
We’re determined to contribute towards EventWell’s fantastic services – and help people whose struggle will continue - today, tomorrow and for months to come.
Please help us reach out and lighten their load by donating now.
