Latest fundraiser hailed a great success for charity
It was another successful day at the Jenna Moriarty foundation raising much-needed awareness and funds in aid of the mental health crisis for children.
The fundraising day target of £1000 was tripled, and it was such a special day, people hiked, ran and cycled for the cause.
In 2013 the family tragically lost Jenna to Suicide and the foundation was set up in her memory.
Fantastic support and great commitment for a great charity. Anyone wishing to get involved the details and links are below.
We’re a Scottish charity that supports young people in our communities by providing free counselling to those in need. 1 in 10 children suffer with a mental health issue. The average wait for help? 10 years. Despite the fact we know the most effective way of managing a mental health issue is early intervention, poor understanding of how symptoms manifest along with the strain on the NHS has meant the government has been slow in responding to an ever more clear danger to our nation’s young people.
The challenges are significant, but together we can make a difference. That’s why we’re working in our local communities, across Glasgow and the west of Scotland to identify the children and young people most in need.
We provide counseling services to those who require early intervention or support during times of crisis with the purpose of mitigating and managing mental health issues. We also contribute a portion of our funds to access scholarships for disadvantaged young people to attend Glasgow School of Art, we know this is the best way to honour our daughter and sisters legacy.
So how can you help, whether it’s a bake sale, scaling a mountain or jumping out a plane there’s plenty you can do to contribute. Come and visit our website, have a look at what we’ve been doing, and let us know how we can use your talents to build a more compassionate and equal society.
