If you haven’t heard about our fantastic Peer Support Group, you can find out more here. SV2 introduced the service at the beginning of the year, as members of the 12 Week Support Group expressed the desire to continue contact and support with others who share similar experiences in life.
Members decided they wanted to acknowledge the support that
helped them and raise money to continue helping others in the future. They are
an incredibly proactive bunch and put together a fantastic event.
Hosting at The White Horse pub in Derby, members and other
volunteers joined together for a day entertainment whilst raising awareness of
SV2. There were some fantastic performances from various artists including The
Village, Mae Monypenny, Inanna Street, Rex Portillano-Barr, Angela Martin and
Pippa Nayer. Not forgetting, of course, the White Horse’s DJ Minty supporting
There was also an array of stalls with raffle prizes and cakes, and one Peer Support member actually made a first ever SV2 cake (pictured below).
The event organiser from the Peer Support Group said:
“Throughout the process we were supported by many local businesses,
volunteers and performers who gratefully donated their time, services and
products. It would be impossible to list them all.
“The White Horse donated the space, technicians, Dj and
equipment, without which it wouldn’t have been possible. I am overwhelmed by
the power of people.”
The group raised a total of £926 and we are extremely proud
of their efforts.
