Thought about fundraising for us? And want to save lives whilst doing so?….Then you’re in the right place!

We are looking for wonderful people to join us in fundraising to reach our 30K in 90 days target.

All money raised will go directly into providing help services for people in distress. We want to ensure that any one, of any age, facing any problem can get the help that they need. Suicide and mental health struggles are far too common and it is so important that we keep providing a high level of help when people need it the most.

For an idea of what impact donating has, every week on average, we receive 6 new requests for face to support and each lifesaving therapy session costs £25.

All ideas welcome, let us know what you have in mind…the more imaginative and creative the better! Here are a few of our favourite below:

- Bake sales (always go down a treat)

- Sky dive

- Fun runs

- Three peaks challenge

- Mount Kilimanjaro

- London Marathon (if you fancy a challenge!)

- Book sales

- Bring and buy sale

- Auctions/raffles

- Car war!

- Come Dine with Me. (for all the foodies out there!)

- Super market packing

- Coffee morning

- Bingo

- Fancy dress days

- Busking (Ideal for all the music lovers)

- Art exhibition

- Craft off

- Non uniform days

- Pub quiz!

Every penny raised truly goes a long way, please help us to continue to help the community.

If you think you can help us, and want to get involved, please email info@harmless.org.uk and you could be helping us to save lives.

Harmless is an award winning self harm and suicide prevention project that has been successfully delivering services for the past 10 years, since 2007. Over the past year Harmless has gone from strength to strength. We’ve increased our partnerships and been involved in more research based projects, attended and presented at conferences all over the UK in addition to holding a National conference of our own. We have also extended our training programme to raise awareness of self harm, mental health & suicide amongst the community and professionals. We have received awards for our work and recruited more staff in order to help more people.

Our wonderful Tomorrow Project continues to deliver suicide prevention and postvention work in the community. We have now been commissioned by the EMAHSN to provided two new suicide prevention pathways for both Suicide Crisis and Suicide Bereavement within Nottingham City, this will soon be rolled out to Nottinghamshire County also. We work with those directly and indirectly affected by suicide, provide facilitative support to individuals and organisations with questions and concerns about suicide, deliver workshop style information sessions to improve understanding and awareness of suicide and self harm, and promote help seeking in the community as a whole.

The celebration evening will mark a major milestone in our work, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, and give us the opportunity to raise revenue to keep our vital services afloat. Each year we spend time with friends and colleagues, celebrating the work that we have done and the lives that we have saved and the money we raise on the night goes directly back into our life saving services.

Please come along and join is in what will be a wonderful night, learn more about our work, celebrate our triumphs and help us to raise money to keep us driving services in the field of self harm and suicide prevention forwards.

Harmless bake sale for Comic Relief!

Today we are raising money for Comic Relief 2017.

If you fancy a sweet or savoury snack pop into

Nottingham Voluntary Action Centre, 7 Mansfield Road, NG1 3FB.

We are here till 4pm!!!

Exciting news!!!

The knitting pattern for The Lovelock scarf will be launching on Tuesday 28th February!

Pattern designer Clare, from Sister Mountain, developed a knitting pattern to sell to raise money for us after losing her friend to suicide. The scarf will mark her friend’s life and we hope that by celebrating her life we can offer hope to others who are struggling. Read their story Here

All of the proceeds from pattern sales of the Lovelock scarf will be donated to Harmless. We were chosen by the bereaved family as we are an organisation where all proceeds go directly towards saving lives, so that no one else faces such a tragic loss.

The lovelock scarf is both tragic and hopeful, and a simple way that we can pass on the love and warmth of an item of clothing to people feeling lost and alone and desperate whilst raising hope, awareness end funds for our vital work.

If you can help us and knit us a very special scarf then please contact us!

If you are interested and want to know more you can contact us by email at info@harmless.org.uk.

We will also be auctioning some of the amazing scarves to add to the fundraising.

SKYDIVING LEANNE

Our intern, Leanne, is raising money for Harmless by taking part in a sponsored sky dive.

 “I’m Leanne Moulton I have recently started my internship at Harmless . After working closely with the harmless team I’ve gained a true understanding of the importance of the work they do and how critical the services they provide, because of this I would love to help in any way I can so have decided to conquer my fear of flying and do a sponsored sky dive!

The sky dive will be on Sunday the 6th of March, all money raised will go straight to Harmless to help them reach their 30K in 90 day target to continue their lifesaving support! All donations no matter how small are incredibly appreciated.”

Support her now by sponsoring her through her gofundme  page, Leanne’s Sky Dive for Harmless, or click here.

We look forward to sharing the amount raised and a video clip of how well she coped.

New Year, New You?

Have you thought about setting yourself a personal target this coming year, or that you’d like to get fit, or do good for others?

There are a million and one ways that you could help our service in 2017 and we’d be greatfeul of you doing any one of them but one of those ways would be to undertake a fundraiser for us.

We’re currently looking for volunteers to independently register for the local, Robin Hood marathon, half marathon or additional races. 

Registration is now open, and we have a Facebook group where runners can share encouraging stories and moral support.

You can also establish a fundraising page, like this one here:

https://localgiving.org/fundraising/mum2marathon/

That means you can set personal target and take donations directly to our service. 

We could not do this without you. We are grateful of every penny we receive and we spend that money directly on providing free support to people in distress and their families. 

Help us to save lives.

‘When I needed help, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I called a helpline but they just listened. I had totally given up on my life and wanted to die. When I found the help I needed through these guys I can honestly say that they saved my life when I saw no other way out’
