Steve Morgan Foundation’s recent charity visits

As always, the past few months have been extraordinarily busy for the Steve Morgan Foundation with our 60th Smiley Bus donated, our Maggie’s Partnership and Enable programme launched, and the purchase of the Foundation’s first building for use by the charity Stick “n” Step.

On top of this, we have also visited a number of the wonderful charities that we support. We like to visit the charities we support regularly in order to get to know the charity itself and the people behind it.  This enables us to build a strong relationship and gather further understanding of how we can support them even further.

Here are just some of the charities we have visited recently:

Women’s Health Information & Support Centre (WHISC)

The WHISC is a Liverpool based charity that has been dedicated to supporting women and their families with regards to their health and well-being since 1984. The charity provides many services in order to do this, including:

> Counselling

> Complimentary therapies (such as: aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, etc.)

> ‘Drop-in’ sessions

> Support groups

> And much more

During our visit, we were given the opportunity to see a number of these services in action, including a lively belly dancing class and a support group session. We are extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to visit and meet the wonderful team running the charity, as well as meeting the women that the charity supports.

Woodwork to Wellness

Woodwork to Wellness is a fantastic charity that provides people from all walks of life with a creative activity to carry out in their spare time when they find themselves at a difficult place in life. The charity is visited by people of all ages that may be in a difficult place as a result of a medical incident, adjusting to retirement or a recent life change.

The workshop itself is entirely wheel-chair friendly and provides visitors with the opportunity to build or help to shape woodwork projects. If not wanted by the maker, these items are subsequently sold at the on-site shop.

No one day is the same within the workshop as they have multiple projects within their weekly programme. We are very excited for further visits to this exciting and creative charity, that carries out fantastic work for the local community.
