Team story

[p]On the 8th September 2019 my mam and I will be running the Great North Run in honour of my dad, who we sadly lost to suicide on the 23rd December 2011. We have decided to run in order to raise awareness of a mental health charity close to our heart and local area - Escape Intervention Services.[/p][p]Shortly after the loss of my dad, my brother and I were referred to Escape and as a family we were provided with bereavement counselling that helped us overcome our heartache. As a family we feel we would not have been able to overcome this difficult time without the services that Escape provided and have always said we will be forever in their debt. [/p][p]In our local area there are very few support services for young people, therefore we would like to raise awareness of the fact Escape Intervention services are available in South Tyneside for young people aged 4-25 years, who are suffering from bereavement/loss, domestic violence issues, substance misuse, bullying, victims of crime or any other forms of discrimination.[/p][p]Escape relies on funding to continue their services, which without young people in our community would be at a huge loss. In order to give back we have decided to represent Escape whilst we run and therefore hope you can support us in supporting this local service by giving a little donation! It would be very appreciated to both our family and Escape.[/p][p]Escape support services can be contacted via telephone: 01914276353 or 07599307481.[/p][p]Website: [url=http://www.escapeintervention.org.uk/]http://www.escapeintervention.org.uk[/url] [/p]
