Sudbury fundraising events planned to support campaign

A number of fundraising events are being planned to raise money in Sudbury for a growing campaign to encourage people talk about their problems.

The Just Talk campaign was recently launched by leading psychotherapist Glenda Roberts following the suicides of two of her children’s close friends.

As part of the campaign free monthly drop-in session are being offered to allow people to discuss any problems they may have in confidence without needing to book an appointment.
Ms Robert says a number of fundraising possibilities are currently being discussed and would love to hear from anyone looking for a cause to support.

“We need to raise funds so that we can keep expanding the campaign and reach out to more people who may be suffering alone and feel there is no way out of their problem. This whole campaign is about preventing people from falling into depression and in worst case scenarios committing suicide. We have already arranged two fundraising events, but we will be planning many more.”

The Just Talk Drop-in sessions are held at the ExploringU Wellbeing Centre, the Old Press Rooms, Station Road, Sudbury. The next session will be held on Saturday, February 25, between 10am and 2pm.

“I believe everyone has the right to be heard and to have someone they can trust. We want those people to know we are here for them, we are offering a safe and friendly environment where people of any age or background can just come and talk freely about any issue they may have .”
