We are delighted to announce that TrustLinks is The Royals Shopping Centre’s official charity of the year 2019-20.
Based in Southend, TrustLinks is an independent mental health and wellbeing charity that’s committed to supporting the local community here in South East Essex.
We are proud to be raising funds on their behalf this year because the charity provides vital wellbeing support to residents throughout Southend and the surrounding areas. They are dedicated to strengthening our community through a range of activities, projects and supportive services aimed at carers and the wider community. This includes a series of environmental, recovery and wellbeing workshops and courses including coordinating REACH – the South East Essex Recovery College.
In their Growing Together project, they have four community gardens designed to help encourage socialisation, install confidence and educate those involved. These therapeutic gardening projects offer a place to relax and gain new horticultural skills, which is so beneficial for improving mental health and could even lead to job opportunities. TrustLinks also provides counselling and peer support activities for carers.
To raise funds for TrustLinks, we will be hosting a number of events in The Royals throughout the year. You can also donate online here.
Lastly, we would love to thank the RNLI for their participation in our events throughout 2018/19 as our charity of the year. It was a fantastic opportunity to raise funds and local awareness for this worthy cause.
