The exploringU counselling fundraising Events
Welcome to our fundraising page; every so often the exploringU counselling team decide on a charity of their choice to raise money for, fundraising is fun to do, not only are we helping a good cause, we take this opportunity to spend fun time together as a team and believe strongly in giving back.
2017 – 2018
In November 2016 ExploringU Counselling set up Just Talk Campaign. Now a registered charity. We are proud sponsors of the Just Talk Campaign,
Just Talk Campaign was set up after the suicide of her children’s two friends has prompted an award winning business woman to launch drop-in sessions to encourage people to talk about their problems.
Glenda D Roberts, who runs the ExploringU Centre for well-being in Sudbury, launched the first “Just Talk” session at the end of the November, which was open to all age groups and is free of charge. To read more about Just Talk Campaign please click here.
Since starting Just Talk Campaign we have done many Fundraising events. You can read about them here. We hope to continue raising money to help fund Just Talk Campaign and just as importantly to continue raising awareness.
In November 2017 Just Talk Campaign received Charity status and became a charity with the registered number: 1175216.
