THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Wee Red Upcycles hit £4,000👏🙏👏🙏❤️❤️
I can not tell you how grateful I am of ALL of YOUR SUPPORT out there from donations, buying rewards, for sharing, for encouraging me, for giving me hope, for giving me self belief, for coming together in such awful difficult times, for making a massive difference in Kids, Young People & Adults lives, for being an amazing community. I am SO PROUD to have such an AMAZING FAMILY, FRIENDS & COMMUNITY. ❤️🙏❤️🙏
Thank you just doesn't seen to be enough.
THANK YOU 😘👍🙏❤️WOW WE REACHED £4,000 ON OUR @crowdfunderuk last night. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE INCREDIBLE SUPPORT. I am truly blown away and actually can't believe the generousity of you all. I am a keyworker in the Social Care Sector too and just finished a sleepover shift. Realised I had hit £4,000 on shift and had a wee dance with young woman I support, her and her family also supported me ❤️❤️
Incredible support and love for myself and the values of Wee Red Upcycles to create opportunities for those who are often overlooked in our communities to reach their full potential through creativity.
This money will help to make up

WAYS TO SUPPORT YP WITH DISABILITIES AND ADDITIONAL SUPPORT NEEDS. Ideas such as tailored craft/activity packs and an online forum for peer support and teaching workshops on line.

We will also be able to get our website fully functioning and try take things more online through teaching and inspiring others through creativity and to try help to improve peoples Mental Health and Well Being during these difficult times of COVID-19. It has ever been needed more.

The above will also apply to ADULTS WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES already known to us, as we were setting a creative group up just before this all happened. These adults are now enough more vulnerable and becoming increasingly isolated. So we are looking at ways to help support them.
