King Lifting supports charity Hope Against Suicide

A donation by King Lifting to Bristol-based Hope Against Suicide this year will allow the charity to add two new mental Health responders to the team, enhancing the free mental health support the charity provides in the community.

Tristan King, Managing Director said “Hope Against Suicide is a grassroots charity that does amazing work to provide this service to support those in the community who suffer with mental health issues and/or are thinking of suicide, we are proud to support the work they do.”

Suicide is the leading cause of death in the under 35’s in the UK – statically one person in the UK ends their life by suicide every hour, with many others attempting to do so.

Clare Kemp, “We very much appreciate the support that King Lifting are providing and look forward to our new partnership. Together we can make a difference.”

Hope Against Suicides’ responders work in busy areas of Bristol and the charity also provides a follow up care service for those they have spoken to.

King Lifting organises Macmillan Coffee Morning

Reanna Edwards, Result Application Support Co-ordinator at King Lifting explains why she decided to host a Macmillan Coffee Morning and the success behind the morning:

“I decided to organise a Macmillan Coffee Morning after the father of my friend died of cancer and he told me what an amazing help the charity was to him and his family. I had seen the Coffee Morning advertised and everyone was really helpful agreeing to bake cakes and take part. The Coffee Morning went ahead on 4th October and was a brilliant success. Macmillan gives vital support to those who are facing one of the toughest times of their lives and everyone agreed it was a fantastic cause to support. We managed to raise £200.00 by selling cakes and we took part in a ‘Guess how many spots are on the cake’ game which was sent in my Macmillan Coffee Morning kit. Vanda from Accounts won Star Baker for her delicious chocolate orange cupcakes. It was a great morning raising money for a great cause.”

 

The Lawrence Centre thanks King Lifting for its generosity

King Lifting has recently added signs to The Lawrence Centre in Wells, Somerset, a community-centred charity providing day opportunities for older people, including those living with health issues and memory loss.

The signs will make an enormous difference to the Centre by helping people to find them more easily, especially important when fetes and open days are running.
