My story

[p]Compass Counselling is an amazing charity that provides affordable counselling for anyone who lives on Merseyside, no matter how much they are able to donate for their sessions. I currently volunteer for Compass and I am very proud of this connection. We provide help for up to 24 sessions and support people with a wide range of complex issues. Our clients really appreciate the understanding and support they receive and they frequently tell us that our work has saved or changed their lives. Compass is delighted to have been awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service this year in recognition of the quality and value of the service provided by our volunteers.[/p][p]The work Compass does has always been incredibly important with the constant rise in mental health issues, but in light of the pandemic this work is needed even more than ever. Compass had to work incredibly hard to adapt our services to provide support through the lockdowns and we are very proud that we continued to deliver almost as many counselling sessions last year as we did in 2019. [/p][p]Unfortunately, many of our clients have been hit hard by the restrictions around COVID-19 and our donations have reduced as a result, making it harder for us provide our services. [b]We rely on donations to provide affordable sessions to continue our work and your support is more necessary and valued than ever before.[/b][/p][p]To continue to help Compass provide such a valuable service to the people of Merseyside I will be running the London Marathon because it is extremely important to me to raise essential funds to continue to provide counselling to people in real need of it. I was originally hoping to run in the 2020 London Marathon but sadly this wasn't possible because of the cancellation of the race for non-elite athletes. I have been training since the start of the year and I have already run 850 miles in preparation. There have been times when the training has been painful and gruelling but knowing that your donations will provide such needed counselling support has spurred me on.[/p][p]Thank you for reading this and please give generously to support my efforts to raise money for this great charity and it's work and check back after Sunday 3rd October to see my update with photos from the day.[/p]
