We would like to say a big thank you to Caroline Gratrix, and everyone who danced the night away at Throwback on Saturday 18th November, for raising money for local young people’s mental health!
The evening was filled with fantastic music, accompanied by lots of dancing and partying, as well as a prize draw to win afternoon tea for two at the Roseate Hotel, an overnight stay for two at Premier Suites and a £70 facial treatment voucher at SkinSense!
Through ticket sales, prize draw entries and donations on the night, the total amount raised for No5 was £4,070, but support following the night is still pouring in so watch this space for an updated total!
With thanks to match-funding available through our Big Give Christmas Challenge, the money raised can be doubled and will make twice the difference to local young people’s mental health!
About the event, Caroline said:
“I had support from No5 as a young adult that was a complete game changer.
They do phenomenal work with young people in Reading and I know demand for their services is high. I really wanted to help raise money to enable them to deliver more counselling sessions.
The money raised through the Throwback event will mean an extra 185 counselling sessions for young people who need help”
If you would like to fundraise for No5, please get in touch below as we would love to hear from you!
