Thank you!

A huge thank you for the amazing support for #CheerForGood #HarmlessUK Starbucks campaign so far!

This is part of the #CheerForGood campaign partnership between Neighbourly and Starbucks, supporting local community organisations. There are 120 charities across the UK competing for 2K. The top 30 charities who #Cheer the loudest will win!

For a small charitable organisation (only 16 of us!) this is a HUGE amount of money. For an idea how huge… £25 is the cost of one therapeutic session that could save someone’s life.

To help us win please like, share, post, re tweet, Tweet and comment! Any social media activity on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and  Neighbourly will increase our cheer score!

The more people supporting us the more lives are saved. So if you believe in saving lives please cheer for us!

Launch day: #CheerForGood

Starbucks are partnering with Neighbourly to support local community charities with a donation.

Now it’s time to #CheerForGood

We NEED You!

The Hen Chow ‘Farm and River Route’

On Sunday 15th October, I was privileged to be part of the 2nd Hen Chow ‘Farm and River Route’, a 2.5 mile route to help raise funds to improve mental healthcare for young adults.

We had the option to run, walk or ride (yes you heard it right, you could ride in an amazingly cool tractor-trailer). But whether you chose to walk, run or grab that cheeky ride, it did not matter. It was also not important if you were wearing your best running kit, yours jeans or you were pushing a baby pram. It only mattered that you were there, and that was something that we all shared in that moment. Everyone that participated (and there were so many!) knew they were part of something special. Yet, that was done with the natural ease of something you do every day – step by step, we create momentum, we move. We go forward.

There is an old Chinese saying that goes something like this – walk alone, and you’ll go fast. Walk together, and you’ll go far.

And we did. Once again, everyone came together on that morning, showing that just as being kind and compassionate, we can also be the driving (no pun intended, I will however remind you again of the amazing tractor available) force behind change.

Thanks for reading,

Ana

Harmless’ 10th anniversary celebration event a great success!

Thank you to everyone who supported us, and came to our celebration event. The evening was a huge success and one we will remember. 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.

Thank you to Thomas, our wonderful photographer who has now twice dedicated his time in supporting us at events. Being able to look back on those moments you captured means a great deal to us.

Thank you to Deri, A Moment’s Notice and Wilf & the Hullabalos. You all really made the evening incredibly special with your fantastic musical performances. We are all really grateful for your help by stepping in last minute.

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

Thank you to all the businesses (big and small!) who supported us with raffle and auction prizes: Super + Super, Cath Kidston Nottingham, Planet Bounce, LC FC, Oscar and Rosie’s, Team Sport, Denby Pottery, Eden Hall Spa, Aspell Cyder, Create Gift Love, National Ice Centre, Megan Makes Illustration, Paper Veil Weddings, Microflight, Boots, Ragdale Hall, DawnsBaloons4all and many, many more.

And finally a thank you to everyone who came and supported us, without you all, we wouldn’t be here in a position to celebration ten years in service. Your support means that the 30,000 individuals we have supported so far can keep growing for years and years to come, and ultimately be able to save more lives.

A magical evening and one we won’t forget. Thank you.
