Chapter has launched a crowd-funding campaign!
In previous years, Chapter has hosted an annual Christmas event to connect people in Cheshire who are living with serious mental illnesses and may otherwise spend Christmas Day alone. Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was cancelled in 2020. This had a devastating impact for potential attendees who had no other plans for the holidays.
We are determined for it to go ahead this year, in our post-lockdown world. As such, Chapter is kindly asking for support from individuals and businesses alike to raise the £3,113 it needs to pull off the event this Christmas.
Our CEO, Daniel Rogers, commented:
“Christmas can be a very lonely time for many people in our community, and at Chapter we see first-hand how much this can impact someone’s mental well-being.
In previous years, our annual Christmas meal has helped to reduce isolation by giving people who would otherwise have no plans the opportunity to make new friends and celebrate the holidays together.
The pandemic has been extremely challenging for those who are on their own and living with mental ill-health. Knowing how vital this event will be for them, we are determined for it to go ahead in 2021.”
We are crowdfunding the Christmas event as part of Cheshire West Crowd, a new project in which Cheshire West And Cheshire Council is using the crowdfunding platform Spacehive to provide opportunities for community initiatives to access funding.
Anyone can pledge a donation and follow the campaign via Spacehive, Individuals and businesses alike. We hope that, with the more support it gets from the community, the Council will provide additional backing, and we can achieve our goal of this amazing event for our much deserving service users this Christmas, which has meant so much in previous years.
