Charlie Waller Memorial Trust Carol Service

As part of the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust Carol Service Committee, I would love to invite you to join us on Monday 12th December, at St Luke’s Church.

The trust was set up in 1988, by the parents of Charlie Waller, who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. They set up the trust to educate young people on the importance of staying mentally well and increase the awareness of the signs and the dangers and to encourage those who may be depressed to seek help.

The carol service is such a lovely evening, with some fantastic readers and will be sure to put you in the christmas spirit! Ticket’s are on sale now through the website, please head there for more information.
