Stuart's Virgin London Marathon for Vine
Why we need your help
Vine Counselling Services are pleased to announce that Stuart Eldridge will be running the Virgin London Marathon 2020 to raise funds for the charity.
I am so pleased to be able to raise much needed funds for a local charity by running the London Marathon 2020.
I am running for Vine Counselling Services. For the last 12 years Vine has been providing donation-based professional counselling to adults within the local area who are struggling to cope – this could be for a number of reasons including anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, family or personal crisis, abuse, self harm, self esteem and confidence issues.
The charity’s services are well respected amongst local GPs and other health-based organisations, with a large proportion of clients coming via GP recommendation, as well as through personal recommendation, website enquiries and signposting from other agencies.
Only a proportion of costs needed to provide this service are met by client donations and, therefore, Vine relies on the support of local businesses, ‘Friends of Vine’ who offer an amount each month by direct debit, grants, other donations and fundraising events.
With mental health services being such a big talking point at the moment and there being such a need for people to access affordable help, appointments with the professionals from Vine Counselling Services are in such high demand. There is a need to increase the number of appointments on offer each week and monies I raise through my running the Marathon will help towards this.
YOUR SUPPORT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
