Did you know?

Hi All,

We thought it might interest you to know that since launching just 5 years ago, Somewhere House Somerset has had over 5500 hours of face to face contact, be it on a 121 basis, with a family or at a school or college.

It’s quite staggering how many people have and continue to benefit from this worthwhile charity and a big thank you to all of you who have and continue to donate to us.

We really appreciate it and with your support, so many lives change as a result….for the better

Thank you

Everest Base Camp Accomplished!!

We have exciting news!!

Dave and Kyle have returned safely from their epic adventure and we’re so proud to announce they successfully climbed to Everest Base Camp and the in the process, raised a huge amount of money for our charity.

Dave shared what an incredible experience it had been and that whilst gruelling and as you can see from the pictures at times, cold, it was a once in a  lifetime trip and hugely enjoyable and of course, rewarding.

From everyone at Somewhere House Somerset a MASSIVE thank you for all your donations and messages of luck and of course, to Dave and Kyle on this momentous achievement.

Here’s a few photos from the trip:

Charity Jumble Sale raises over £200

Over the bank holiday weekend we hosted our second jumble sale to raise money for the charity. The clients at Somewhere House worked so hard creating banners for the event at St Andrews Church Hall in Burnham and on the day, they raised over £200 for Somewhere House Somerset.

Well done to all who made it possible, all who attended, helped and donated and special thanks to St Andrews Church for accommodating us again.

A good day was had by all!

Table Eight Wedmore Fundraiser

Our friends at Table Eight Curry House in Wedmore recently hosted a curry night to raise money for the charity and Dave & Kyle’s upcoming trip to Everest Base Camp

It was a fantastic night, so well supported and of course, delicious food.

A staggering £800 was raised for the cause.

Thank you to all from us all and especially to Table Eight for their continued support and hospitality.

Recovery Service at St Andrews Church

On Fathers Day this year, with the support of St Andrew’s Church, we held our first recovery service at the church. This coinciding with the end of the recovery art exhibition which was displayed in the church throughout June.

The event was so well supported by everyone and special thanks to the clients of Somewhere House for their participation. One of the staff there, Rob, also spoke to the congregation about celebrating recovery and what it means to him. Our now legendary cake sale was also a huge success afterwards and a big thank you to everyone who attended, supported, donated and ate….cakes! We raised just under £200 for the charity. Amazing!

A big thank you must also go to St Andrews Church for their continued support. We really appreciate it.
