EOS Jaywick Drop-in - Sponsored walk
We have been doing some work with, and within, the community of Jaywick which has been noted as the most deprived place in England. We run a drop-in session in the heart of Jaywick on a weekly basis, Tuesday mornings, where all members of the community are very welcome. We provide different sources of help and support as a unite team, including a qualified nurse, a specialist in various types of housing and benefits, and volunteers who can offer more general support and advice. Some folk within this community are registered under MIND, who do an amazing job in supporting these individuals.
As suggested by the Jaywick team, a 6 mile sponsored walk took place along the Jaywick seafront to raise money for the MIND charity. This idea was initiated by the Drop-In community at Jaywick wanting to give something back to charity, and to be a part of something in which they can relate to and be passionate about.
The Jaywick team raised a fantastic £1,035 for MIND which included a £500 donation from TSB Bank.....
