Viking FM’s Cash for Kids and Princes Quay join forces for Mental Health Awareness Week
When:18th May 11am -2pm
Where: Quayside Level 1, Princes Quay
Shoppers are invited to a charity tea party, where they can have a complimentary cuppa and take some time out to chat with friends and family, as the shopping centre show their support during Mental Health Awareness week. With raffle prizes up for grabs and various entertainment on the day hosted by Pure Events, proceeds raised will go towards Viking FM’s Cash for Kids – a charity that responds to the needs of children in our local communities.
Mental Health can affect anyone at any stage in their life, and Mental Health Awareness Week is a great time to sit down for a cuppa and a catch up with friends and family after a hectic week.
Princes Quay Marketing Manager Sarah Smith said:
“One in four adults and one in ten children experience mental illness, so raising awareness and supporting Mental Health Awareness Week was really important to us. It’s a really relaxed event where people can simply come for a cuppa and take some time out or catch up with friends and family.
There will be lots of activities and entertainment for the kids so we invite everyone to come down for a drink and a natter.”
In 2018 Viking FM’s Cash for Kids supported 20,562 children in East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire thanks to fundraising campaigns including Superhero Day. Cash for Kids is a grant giving charity that supports local sick, disadvantaged and disabled children as well as community groups and other charities including Health Stars, who are fundraising for a new young people’s mental health in-patient facility which is being built in Hull.
Kathryn Biggin, Viking FM Charity Manager added:
“Thank you so much to all the schools and businesses who recently supported our Superhero Day fundraising campaign. Thanks to your generous donations we can help the likes of Health Stars who are developing facilities to meet the needs of children needing mental health support.
We urge shoppers to pop down to Princes quay and join us for a cuppa and a chat. Together we can erase the stigma surrounding mental health and support children in the area experiencing such difficulties.”
