Third Report for Aurora's Crowdfunding Campaign (2015)

This is the third report on Aurora's Crowdfunding Campaign which we carried out in 2015.  The initial campaign aimed to raise funds so we could offer free/low cost counselling for up to 5 people abused in childhood, and since then we have extended it so we can help up to 10 people. To date, your donations have helped 5 people who have received a total of 77 counselling sessions. 

Below are testimonials from two clients.  The first is from Julie who featured in the orginal appeal film.

I am so touched by the generosity of people. It’s strange for me to be considered for help at Aurora and it’s always surprising when such kindness is shown to me, I feel touched and full of gratitude. 

I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to those people who have contributed to Aurora. They have enabled me to have a place to go to continue my journey to wholeness. I am discovering my joy and hope in life.  It makes such a profound difference to know there is a loving, supportive place at Aurora for me and for others who also need a warm place to be cared for. I simply feel grateful.

The second is from the mother of John who himself gave a testimonial in the previous report.

I am John’s mum and I would just like to say a big thank you for all the help you have given my son over the last few months. He was in a really bad way when he first started coming to you and I was so worried about him.

Since attending your sessions he has become more confident and is beginning to show progress.  I know he still has a long way to go but I know with your help he will get there. Thank you so much for giving me my son back and helping him be able to live again. Your organisation is a fantastic place and without you I can't imagine where John and people like him would be.

A video to accompany this report has also been produced that also details the progress of John and Julie.

Once again, many thanks to all who have donated to Aurora. Your money has helped Julie and John, and benefitted three other clients.  We still aim to reach our new target of £10000 so please forward this report to others who you feel may be able to help.

Thank you.

Nick
