Local mental health charity ‘Second Thoughts East Yorkshire’ (STEY) is having a charity fundraiser night on Sunday 20th October 2019 at Pave on Princes Avenue in Hull.
The event has been fully organised by local soul band Late Night Marauders especially for STEY. The band is being supported by pop band Glass Diamonds. As well as the entertainment, there are great raffle prizes too! Late Night Marauders are a 6 piece outfit led by female singer/songwriter Ruth Scott writing and playing original Blues/Jazz/Soul based music.
Second Thoughts East Yorkshire was formed in May 2015 and began operating in August that year. In its first 2 years has supported over 230 people in managing mental health problems ranging from anxiety to schizophrenia.
Greg Harman, founder of Second Thoughts East Yorkshire, said
More people are struggling with maintaining good mental health nowadays, because of the stresses of modern day living. As well as working with individuals, we run small groups in and around Hull on anxiety management and building confidence for example. We also work with employers on mental health awareness
We are not funded through any grants or contracts from the NHS or Local Authorities. Hearing upbeat music is one of the most therapeutic activities to lift mood, so when the guys in Late Night Marauders offered to organise this gig for us we jumped at the chance. As well as informing people about what we do, this launch night raises money for us too, plus people can meet us and find out more about what we do whilst having a good time
Pete Robinson, trombonist with the Late Night Marauders and trustee of Second Thoughts East Yorkshire said
Our band is really happy to support this local charity. Ruth Scott, James Wood, Tom Small, James North, Simon Neligan and I, all feel really passionately about mental health issues and this is one way we can show that through performing. We hope to see many people joining us on the night to have a great time too
