JSA Psychotherapy attend charity fundraiser in Gorton
Over the weekend, JSA Psychotherapy and our sister company Life Change Care were fortunate to be invited to the Together Trust ball, a fundraising event hosted by the charity of the same name. The night saw the team not only enjoying the occasion for its festivities, but also connecting with many other industry professionals in support of an excellent cause.
The Together Trust are a charity operating in Greater Manchester and across the North West who provide a variety of services for children and young adults with special needs. These include residential care, support for families and fostering, community services and many more. With an obvious parallel to the work that we provide in our own sector, we were delighted to attend and show our support for their ongoing efforts to improve the quality of life for so many in the region.
The venue for the ball was Gorton Monastery, fully renovated in recent years to serve as a spectacular event space. Over the course of the evening the hosts conducted a raffle and an auction to raise further funds for the running of the services that Together Trust provide. There was also a gallery of paintings created by the service users themselves that were up for silent bids throughout the night. Live music followed a short video that detailed the value and impact of the charity’s outreach work.
The majority of the attendees arrived representing Manchester’s thriving legal sector, many of whom we recognised from previous cases and other, similar events which we have attended in the past. Over the last 30 years, Julie has had extensive liaison with the courts, for whom we provide a significant quantity of assessment work and mandated clinical intervention, especially within the family justice system, as well as public and private law.
Overall, everyone from both businesses had an excellent time, made all the better by the knowledge that the proceeds will help to facilitate such a vital function in supporting those at need in our community.
