All proceeds raised on the night will be split between three local charities:
WHAG – WHAG is a registered charity working in Bury, Rochdale Cheshire West and Chester. WHAG was established in
1981 to provide supported accommodation for vulnerable homeless women. Its services have since expanded to include support for victims of domestic abuse. WHAG currently manage a refuge and dispersed property, homelessness supported housing project and provides outreach and floating support work. WHAG deliver domestic violence programmes in the community and its residential projects. They work in schools and the community to raise awareness around domestic violence and homelessness.
Early Break – Traditionally a charity that dealt with young people’s drug and alcohol issues, Early Break has evolved to support young people and families with all complex issues including substance use, mental health, domestic violence and child sexual exploitation. Early Break began the journey in 1994 with a help line set up in a garden shed to support young people with substance-related needs. It soon became apparent that the need was there, funding was found and they have been serving the communities of Bury, Rochdale, Bolton, Salford and Trafford ever since. Over 23 years later they have helped more than 20,000 young people and families. Services include advocacy, 1:1 support for young people, training for young people and professionals, their award winning Holding Families programme which is a whole family support for parents/carers affected by drug and/or alcohol use. They also offer holistic therapies, mindfulness sessions, emotional health and wellbeing groups and bereavement and loss counselling.
The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity (SuperJosh) – Josh’s charity gives help and hope to children and their families who have, or have had, brain tumours and post-surgery disabilities. They provide advice, support and financial assistance with a special focus on those who also have post-surgery disabilities. In addition, the charity helps organisations
and places who played a part in Josh’s journey; hospitals, care centres, special schools and brain tumour awareness groups.
Support can include grants for hospital expenses and travel, the provision of specialist equipment and house adaptations such as track hoists and through-floor lifts, special treats like holidays after Chemo and donating teenage entertainment packages to hospitals.
