Our Warwick branch charity for 2019 is By Your Side, a small local charity supporting families in Coventry and Warwickshire who experience some form of mental illness in pregnancy or following the birth of a child. This amounts to 1 in 5 mums and 1 in 10 dads yet people still don’t feel able to openly discuss it! By Your Side are working locally to change this as well as providing peer support and group sessions for families. They consist solely of volunteers and run purely on charitable funds they raise.
Our very own Leanne Howlett was this year awarded with Volunteer of the Year Award for her outstanding dedication and commitment to the Charity.
We recently took part in the annual Smith Street Party on Saturday 27th July selling Fizz, Cider, Sweets and hosted a raffle to raise money for the Charity. We raised an amazing £594.03 on the day and would like to thank everyone who attended on the day, or bought raffle tickets for the event.
Our office have held a number of small fundraising events so far this year to help raise money for the Charity and we have currently raised an incredible £741.63.
