Recent School Talk at Robert Blake School in Bridgwater

Hi All,

We just wanted to update you on another successful educational interactive workshop we did recently at the Robert Blake School to Year 11 students. Our volunteers did an outstanding job sharing their real life experiences of what life was like in addiction and the consequences this has had on their lives and those around them.

Some of the feedback we received is highlighted below:

“They realised not to get involved with drugs, not to be manipulated and to share their emotions before they become dangerous.”

 “Really well planned and delivered for our year 11 group –  very brave presentation – thank you!”

 “The personal experiences were good – liked how open/blunt they were about everything.”

 “Hard hitting, unexpected, emotional, empathetic.”

“It has made us feel even more determined to not touch drugs at all.”
 
“I felt a huge amount of respect for the presenters, thankful for their time, honesty and bravery and an instant connection.”

A big thank you for all those who support the charity and this is one of the many ways fundraising is put into action, trying to help young people to make better more informed choices.

Brent Knoll Carols Fundraiser

On the 18th December 2017 we were invited to attend the annual Brent Knoll school carols, which was great fun in a beautiful setting. A brass band led the way and there was excellent support. One of our representatives spoke for a few minutes about the work the charity does, then after the carols had finished, there was a buffet and raffle in the school rooms – all proceeds of which were donated to the charity.

We raised a fantastic £228 on the night and here’s a picture from the event. Thank you so much to all those who attended and supported on the night, we had great fun and special thanks to Reverend Simon who kept everyone in check and having fun!
