VCM in Meopham, our first business sponsor!

We are delighted to announce, VCM, a digital media agency in Meopham, run by James Ferrin, has come onboard as our first official counselling sponsor. A counselling sponsor covers the counselling fees of at least one young person and pledges to run an event in the following year to further the cause.

James is renowned in the area for his quizmaster skills and will be hosting a quiz evening sometime in the New Year.

James said: “As a parent, I was aware of how Covid and lockdown has had a significant impact on our Young People. When I heard about Pete’s pilot scheme to make a difference in our own community, I didn’t hesitate in making a contribution.”

Our fund after 3 months now stands at over £5,000. This will fund 100 counselling sessions with local mental health therapists, and could potentially make a difference to up to 11 young people’s lives. This is testament to how the local community, young and old, have come together and given their support.
