Help keep Northern Lights open.

My name is Bethany Owen and I want to raise money for Northern Lights Therapy Service as I feel it provides a lifeline to a lot  of people who are struggling with poor mental health.

This is an organisation that is close to my heart as my mum is one of the founding counsellors and I have watched as she and the other counsellors have worked so hard to fund raise to provide a long term, low cost counselling service for those who have been affected by the trauma of childhood abuse. This service relies totally on donations and fund raising to keep going.

The background:
NLTS is a not-for-profit organisation that provides specialist counselling and psychotherapy to those that have suffered trauma through childhood abuse. It was founded in 2014 by a group of counsellors and psychotherapists who had previously been working for a charity that ceased functioning, concerned about the welfare of their remaining clients and so Northern Lights was born. It's  a local service based in Scarborough covering surrounding ares from Whitby to Bridlington.

This is such an essential service especially now in these uncertain times, people are unable to seek the help they need because of Covid-19.  When lockdown ends this service will be needed more than ever and it is for this reason that I am asking for your help on behalf of Northern Lights.

By donating you will be helping to keep the service open and the money will go towards the rent of the building, utilities and even the teas and coffees provided for the clients.

I would just like to thank you for taking the time to read this.
