LifeSkills are always friendly and have a flexible approach with our learners. They are supportive and really understand the student’s needs.
A big congratulations and thank you to our Basildon centre for taking part in Basildon Pride Week.
Thank you to everybody who donated money, brought in cakes and helped make the cake sale so successful.
A total of £80.25 was raised and donated to Basildon Mind Youth counselling.
Even though it was a wet day, many people from the local community visited and helped with the fundraising efforts. Nothing was wasted, any remaining cakes were taken to St Martin’s church and were distributed to the homeless at the soup kitchen.
The learners and staff at Lifeskills would like to thank (for their support) Basildon Advice Store, Basildon Youth Hub, the emergency services, including fire and ambulance and all the companies in Southgate House, local shops and businesses in Basildon town centre.
It was important to support Basildon Mind and raise much-needed funds for the great work they do. The team at Basildon Mind have counselled the young people of Basildon and helped and supported them at difficult moments in their lives.
As part of the event, displays were created for Basildon Pride Theme Week, which included support information for the LGBTQ community.
A special Thank you to all the staff down at the Basildon centre, well done on raising money for such an incredible cause and encouraging learners to participate and get invloved.
