Story

WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THE UK, JOIN US ON THE 10TH SEPT (11AM) FOR A WALK TALK + RUN TO RAISE £10,000 FOR THE ROB HILL FOUNDATION AND WSUP.  

A huge thank you to those who donated to our last fundraising campaign where you generously gave around £15,000 to support our work with our partner local homeless charity Woolwich Service User's Project (WSUP); particularly in helping disadvantaged people and those facing homelessness at our Brook Hill Road project. 

This year, with the current cost-of-living crisis and fuel and food bills raising significantly, many people are vulnerable this winter and facing 'heat or eat' choices. This leads to further issues with poor mental health and addictions. As a community, we want to help the most vulnerable this winter and address this crisis by providing support, workshops, food, clothing, and more.

How will we raise £10,000? Well on the 10th Sept 2022 (11am) at Danson Park (Bexleyheath) or wherever in the UK you feel best suited, we want to encourage people to go out together to do a sponsored 5K Walk, Talk + Run to raise money for The Rob Hill Foundation and WSUP.

Let's talk about mental health together and raise money for the most vulnerable this winter so that they do not face the difficult choice to stay warm or eat.

About The Rob Hill Foundation:

The Rob Hill Foundation helps people beat addiction to both substances and activities; as well as empowering them to deal effectively with anxiety, stress and depression. This extends to dealing with trauma, any fear-based conditions and OCD.

The charity targets people who struggle to find help through the health service, those on benefits, those at risk of homelessness and those who are already homeless; but workshops are open to all.

The charity has delivered workshops to service users of local homeless charities in the Woolwich and Sidcup, Kent area in the UK. These were extremely well received and saw service users recover from life-long addictions. This has allowed many to consider seeking employment or training and taking up other offers of help and support.

In addition, the charity runs an expanding network of free workshops and support groups helping people deal with their addictions. Chris and his team of trained workshop leaders deliver Chris's Beat My Addictions recovery programme and those attending receive ongoing support both from the workshop leaders and other members of the group at different stages of recovery. This builds a ‘community’ around the individual, which lessens the sense of isolation and improves confidence to progress.

The charity’s vision is to expand the workshops to other parts of London and other major cities in the UK and eventually for the work to have a worldwide reach.
