Katie

Thanks to your amazing response to our recent appeal, more people like Katie can be supported through Growing Lives this year.

Growing Lives is a learning and skill-building project based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. The people who attend face a combination of challenges such as homelessness, enduring mental illness and drug and alcohol issues.

The donations you made to the winter appeal will help to keep the Growing Lives craft room, workshop, garden and training kitchen going.

Cathy regularly attends Growing Lives, and was over the moon when she heard how much had been raised:

"I would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU for all donations given to Growing Lives! The project has helped me to be more confident, helped me to socialise again, meeting some amazing people and given me structure to my days.

I appreciate all of the new skills I have learnt and gained with the help and support from the amazing staff.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU AGAIN for the help you have given through your donations to the project. Without all the kind donations, I would not be the person I feel today...THANK YOU!"
