In recent years, the AIM Awards Dinner has held a Charity Collection, principally for the benefit of child-focused charities. To all those who have made donations, thank you so much for your generosity – the charities concerned are all extremely grateful.
The charity we are supporting in 2019 is:
One in every ten children has a diagnosable mental health disorder – that’s probably three in every classroom. A recent survey conducted also found 22% of girls and 9% of boys were self-harming.
These frightening statistics demonstrate just how important it is to look after children’s mental health. bccs is a children’s charity covering East London and Essex, with the primary focus of providing counselling for children and young adults whose wellbeing, mental or emotional health could be at risk. From bereavement to bullying, anxiety or abuse, bccs is there to provide early intervention.
bccs does not receive any national or local statutory funding of any kind; therefore it fully relies on raising funds with the unstinting help of supporters, benefactors and charity collections.
