Forget Me Not club not forgotten

A SERVICE that provides a lifeline counselling and support service has received a double funding boost.

By Andrew Clarke

Forget Me Not, the Hensingham-based charity, has received a total of £5,500 to help it continue its good work.

Steve Cottrell, the owner of Irton Hall, has chosen Forget Me Not as his charity of the year and has donated £3,000.

And a further £2,500 was raised from a dinner organised by Cockermouth Round Table.

Cathy Furnival-Small, Forget Me Not’s founder and director of services, said: “A huge thank-you for these much-needed funds for us to continue to serve the local community.

“We have seen, so far, a few hundred clients – from couples to children – and we see a large number of individual clients since we opened in 2010.

“This money will help keep our doors open, but we are always looking for fundraisers. So if anyone wishes to support a local charity that supports local people, where every penny is kept and used in Cumbria, then please get in touch.”

Forget Me Not works with people covering a host of issues, including depression, bereavement, bullying, self-harming and addiction.
