SOMEWHERE House Somerset, a charity based in Burnham-on-Sea which specialises in therapeutic support for mental health issues including anxiety and depression, is more than £7,400 better off thanks to a charity golf day.
The money was raised by Burnham and Berrow Golf Club whose captains – Justin Lane and Jan Birkett – are pictured handing over a cheque to one of the charity’s trustees, Rob Jones.
He said: “A huge, heartfelt thankyou goes to all the members at the golf club. It’s a donation which will all go directly to supporting vulnerable children, young people, adults and families.
“Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Justin and Jan put on a first class golf day back in September last year with proceeds going not only to us but also Children’s Hospice South West, another hugely vital organisation.
“The generosity of those who entered the competition has been staggering. The kindness and generosity at Burnham and Berrow Golf Club that we experienced when we attended the golf day showed that human spirit is very much alive and kicking.”
Somewhere House Somerset says its mission is to provide a therapeutic service for anyone who chooses to access support in the local community.
“We aim to reach individuals who most need help through a variety of services including low cost counselling, educational workshops and community projects with a professional and flexible approach.”
“We are specialists in helping people with addiction; this includes alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling and food as well as other addictions. Our other area of expertise is with Mental Health. Our team of counsellors and volunteers have a wealth of collective knowledge in this field.”
