This exciting event (outlined below in the previous blogpost) is now finalised and publicity being released now.
Places are limited to 300. Ticketing is FREE. Registration is via the SOS website event page.
Here’s the University of Leicester event page. Venue is the fabulous new George Davies Centre (opposite Attenborough Arts Centre), courtesy of University of Leicester’s Health Matters community project.
This is a joint event FoLaD and SOS (Silence of Suicide – Yvette Greenway and Michael Mansfield’s charity) on Sunday 25th March, 2pm-5.30pm/ latest 6pm.
The SOS event is about 2hrs and begins at 2.30pm in the main lecture theatre (capacity 300). It will be followed by a FoLaD-style pop-up cafe with talking, free tea/coffee, cake and live music.
Willie Thorne, SOS ambassador, will speak. Michael Mansfield and Yvette Greenway will speak and show a video or two, and host discussions.
The SOS events are really wonderful and offer help, support, information, healing, safe discussion and sharing feelings and ideas for people affected by suicide, and others wishing to and raise awareness about and prevent suicide. Much more info at: https://www.sossilenceofsuicide.org/
Made In Chelsea’s Freddie Ferrier is also making a special guest appearance.
There is table space for agencies and relevant providers to display leaflets and have a presence, given that FoLaD / SOS are distinctly non-commercial and focused on healing and wellness, and offering a safe loving relaxing environment to socialise and share helpful ideas, experiences and entertainment etc.
If you are a provider or agency and want to connect and be part of FoLaD, and bring leaflets (and at most a roll-up banner), please contact Alan Chapman to arrange: email@example.com
Thank you all.
We’ll add more details in due course.
