Vicky’s Tough Mudder!!

Please support this amazing woman who is taking part in The Southwest Tough Mudder on 12th August!

Last year I had an epiphany, I realised I needed to exercise in order to keep my mind and body fit. I took to the gym and now go as often as work, family and my body allows!

I decided I wanted to challenge myself and have always wanted to do the tough mudder but this always seemed out of reach fitness wise.

As a counsellor, I work alongside those who need to challenge themselves on a daily basis in order to achieve their goals in life, whether that’s letting go of unhealthy coping strategies or wanting to be a better parent or simply to live life free of their past traumas. I felt I wanted to pay testament to all the people I have worked with and to those I am yet to meet. Entering the 5k Tough Mudder was a way for me to do this and raise some money for Somewhere House Somerset, so that I can highlight the amazing work our team of counsellors, volunteers and trustees do for the people and communities across Sedgemoor and beyond.

So, please sponsor me to get very muddy, exhausted and hopefully come out of this in one piece!!!

Coffee and Chat – Burnham on Sea

Taking place this Saturday! 11am-1pm all are welcome. Come and join us for a free coffee and chat with others. Build new relationships and be a part of an amazing community based charity

Thank you National Lottery

The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded the charity more funding to carry out over 400 hours of 121 counselling in our community. This really is directly helping those in need, in our community. Aside from this, we run community, volunteer based events, and go into schools and colleges doing educational work on the dangers of substance misuse, social media, peer pressure to name a few.

Thank you National Lottery!

Thank you Rotary Club

Last Saturday, we attended the Rotary Presidents’ presentation evening. David Stickels and his team kindly presented us with a cheque for a further £200, to go alongside the £800 already donated to us.

Thank you so much to the Rotary, their support and a lovely evening. This will make a huge difference to the lives of vulnerable people in our community
