On Wednesday 5th June 2019, Compass attended a Volunteer’s fair at the beautiful St George’s Hall in Liverpool. The event was set up in honour of Volunteer’s week. There were over 60 stalls set up and was a great event for all sorts of charities and community groups to come together. Our table was fronted by our amazing volunteer staff who helped people with giving information about the valuable work Compass does, as well as potentially recruiting some more volunteers! It is clear there is a great community here in the area as the venue was buzzing with people interested in wanting to help others. It was an honour to have been asked to attend and we hope that everyone who came to visit our table enjoyed learning all about Compass.
On Friday 17th May a group of HSBC staff and friends completed a sponsored cycle ride from Hunts Cross to Southport to raise funds for Compass.
Not only did they raise over £2,600 to fund 65 counselling sessions at Compass, they also raised awareness of Compass in their workplaces and with colleagues, family and friends. The positive and warm comments from sponsors about compass has been wonderful to hear and a great way to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week
In addition to supporting the team to take time out of the office to complete the ride, HSBC are also contributing significantly to increase the amount raised. We will make great use of this to benefit the local community.
From all the clients who will benefit from this, from our volunteers, staff and trustees
