Get your glad rags on! Home and Family Counselling is ‘Puttin’ on the Glitz’, for one night only, in the gorgeous Grand Foyer of Auckland Museum.
There are many powerful and positive stories about the mental health impact and wellbeing that can result from counselling. Many single mothers and working parents seek assistance regarding multiple issues around housing, finances, poverty, grief and loss, family relationships, separation and abuse. Often they find themselves trapped in a downward spiral of negative issues which they feel are insurmountable. This in turn can trigger a range of mental health issues that if unresolved can become destructive to the whole family.
No one has ever been turned away from Home and Family Counselling’s door, so they are having a fundraiser to support after-hours counselling for low-income families. The aim is to raise enough to fund 320 after-hours counselling sessions for this at risk group in our community. The list of fundraising auction items is growing and already features some fantastic objects including an item signed by Sir Paul McCartney, and a holiday in a winery in Australia’s Hunter Valley amongst others.
There will be some absolutely stellar performers such as Boh Runga, who are donating their performance for the fundraiser. The spotlight will be on two special young people who will really capture your heart with their live performance. Supported by Mike Chunn (Split Enz, Citizen Band) and ‘Play It Strange’, the event will feature Campbell MacKenzie, from Auckland Grammar who will perform his own song ‘What We’ve Always Done’ and Chess Wilson from Epsom Girls Grammar who will perform ‘Let Me Go’.
