Len Pick Trust Vice-Chairman Kevin Day together with fellow trustee, Kay Henderson, were delighted to meet Nicola Brister, lead counsellor of the new 'Don’t Lose Hope Charity ' last week at the former Nat West Bank premises in Bourne to hand over a cheque for £10,000.00 to this new charity. Work has commenced on altering the premises which will be the charity's headquarters once refurbishment is completed The Charity will offer a professional counselling service for all members of the community from age 4 upwards. This will be a free service for families/individuals receiving certain state benefits and affordable to all others. This service will be delivered by a team of qualified and experienced counsellors in private fully equipped counselling rooms.
Don’t Lose Hope will also provide a community cafe which will offer access to support groups, workshops, and advice. The café will be open every day and run by volunteers and trained professionals. This will be a space where anyone will be able to drop in and find someone to talk to, get involved in activities, make friends or just have a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
Kevin said, “This is really an inspirational and exciting volunteer led project which we are sure will bring significant benefits to the local community and we are delighted to offer our support”. Receiving the cheque Nicola Brister said, “We are truly grateful for the very generous support of the Trust at this formative stage of our journey - Thank you Len Pick!
