Open Garden and Multicultural Banquet Fund Raising Events IAO a new Charity Footsteps Walking With You - 10/16 Sep

HELPING THE ADULTS OF TOMORROW TO STOP SUFFERING IN SILENCE

New charity in Martlesham to support young people (aged 11 – 25) who are struggling with mental health difficulties launches two exciting fundraising events.

“Footsteps Walking With You” will offer affordable counselling, with professional counsellors, for youngsters and their families when little support is available elsewhere.

A study by the Mental Health Foundation found that 3 out of 4 mental health problems are established by age 24, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.

Christine Pinder, from the charity said: “We believe that early intervention is key and reaps all sorts of benefits not only in the short term but also has life-long benefits for good mental health and well- being. Our ethos is based in Christianity and we accept clients of all faiths and none, of any race, sexual orientation and gender.”

Footsteps Walking With You have two fundraising events in September to raise awareness and invite everyone to support the charity by attending.

  • Open Garden at Dairy Farm Brightwell on Sunday, September 10th from 14:00 to 17:00. Go along and enjoy the gardens along with tea and cakes. Admission is £4 and under 16s are free.
  • Multicultural banquet at St. Michael’s church, Martlesham Heath on Saturday, September 16th from 16:00 till 18:00. Why not come and enjoy good food from around the world and find out more about Footsteps. Tickets are £20 per adult and under 16s are free; advance purchase is advised.
