Harmless’ celebration event a great success!

All of us here at Harmless and The Tomorrow Project would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us, and who came along to our celebration event. The evening was a huge success and one we will remember. We were able to raise over £2000 for our support services! It was a truly amazing evening from the outset and throughout and we all went away feeling incredibly humbled by the reactions and positivity of those in attendance.

We were supported by so many individuals and businesses and we can’t express our gratitude for that support enough.

On the night we showed our new film called ‘This Time’, you can see this below:

On the night we heard from Faye & Robert who are a mother and son who shared their stories and experiences with Harmless and the Tomorrow Project. We would like to extend a huge thank you to them both for agreeing to do so and for showing incredible bravery in standing up and sharing their journey.

We would like to thank Thomas Griffiths, our wonderful photographer who has supported us at many events over the past 3 years. Being able to look back on those moments you captured means a great deal to us.

Thank you to Joey Collins. You really made the evening incredibly special with your fantastic live music sets and DJ set. We are all really grateful for your help and support in stepping in at late notice.

Thank you for Wes at Ruddington Grange for all the support in the lead up to the event!! You and your team were amazing and really looked after us!!!

And to all of the businesses (big and small!) who supported us with raffle and auction prizes, we would like to extend a big thank you. Your support really does make a difference and means that through the raffle and auction, we are able to raise vital funds to keep our services running to continue to save lives. These also include Pij Inc, who supplied beautifully made framed pictures that were displayed on the tables with messages of hope. Also to Ruby Lou who baked some delicious cookies for each of our guests on the night.

All of your support means that the 3,500 individuals we have provided with face to face support so far can keep growing for years and years to come, and ultimately be able to save more lives.

Next year, our celebration event will take place on Saturday 26th September 2020, so please save the date!

It was a magical evening and one we won’t forget. Thank you.

World Kindness Day

Tuesday 13th November 2018 is world kindness day.

On this day people attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting good deeds and pledging acts of kindness.

These deeds can be as random acts of kindness such as holding doors open or complimenting someone.

Being nice can reduce the stress and negative feelings another person may feel. It can also improve your physical health too.

A core purpose of every organisation should be to create a safe inclusive environment, at Harmless we embody human kindness and foster a culture of support and collaboration. We are huge believers in the power of kindness, particularly in creating and fostering greater kindness through friendship and being good to one another.

Here are five things that everyone can do to be more inclusive. I challenge everyone to do more random acts of kindness daily:

  • Be kind
  • Be safe
  • Make positive choices
  • Look within yourself
  • Be consistent

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree….

Here at Harmless we have received donations of artificial Christmas trees and would love to donate them to those who would otherwise not be able to afford a tree this Christmas.

If anyone would like a Christmas tree please send us an email to info@harmless.org.uk to reserve a tree and we will send you details of how to collect.

Please note that all trees are artificial and no decorations are included. We have a limited number of trees and will be donated on a first come first served basis.
