Jamie’s fund is now an independent charity (Registered number 1151236).
We are launching Jamie’s Fund in Halkyn, where Jamie lived, and activities will be centred around the church between 11 am and 4 pm on the 28th of September.
We’re having a sponsored abseil going 60 feet down from the church tower and there will be various stalls and refreshments and a bouncy castle. In the evening there will be a pub quiz and meal in the Bluebell Inn in Halkyn.
Do come and join us if you can. Due to your generous response we have expanded the plans for the unit we are creating, which will be a much better mental health facility than the present ward. It will provide appropriate accommodation for men and women and children as well as secure accommodation for people who are acutely ill with challenging behaviour. We are aiming to raise £120,000 although the total cost will not be known until the tenders for construction are received.
The plans are being discussed with the community and staff at Kisiizi and we hope that building will commence early in 2014. The Chair of the Trustees, Professor Ewan Wilkinson will be visiting Kisiizi in October 2013 to help progress the plans.
