What’s Your Story Three Times Oversubscribed!

We launched an appeal back in October seeking support to help fund a second pilot of the What’s Your Story? mental wellbeing programme running in Leamington Spa in January.

We seem to have really connected with this programme and were a little surprised to find ourselves massively oversubscribed and with less than half the places we needed for everyone who wanted to attend.

However, I am delighted to say that with the help of Springfield Mind and the WEA  we are now running the programme in Leamington Spa concurrently three times in the new year.

The Springfield Mind sessionsare free and run on Thursday afternoons and Friday mornings but both of these sessions are now fully booked.

The WEA  version runs on Monday evenings from 18.00-21.00 and costs £14.50 per week and is slightly more focused on the teaching of script writing skills. There are still places available for this version.

To run the programme three times instead of one means that some of our costs have tripled and even with the grants and donations we have raised so far we will be running at a significant loss.

Which is where you come in! We are committed to running the programme three times come what may but any donations you give will help reduce our loss and enable us to start to roll the programme out across the UK.

If you are able to help you can do so on our Go Fund Mepage.

Or via BACS to Acc: 65127633 Sort Code: 53-61-3.

All the best and in anticipation… thanks for your donation!
