One of the UK’s leading Asset Finance firms, Ethos – which is based in Harrogate – has supported Wellspring Therapy & Training since January 2018 and the partnership is already proving a worthwhile one for the mental health charity.
Wellspring – also based in the spa town – provides professional, confidential, support to young people and adults, as well as promoting good mental health through education and training. It has just opened a new £1m facility.
Wellspring was chosen by Ethos as it wanted to team up with a local charity that supports adults and children with mental health issues.
Since the start of the year, the business has raised more than £4,000 for Wellspring. Fundraising will continue through a monthly donation to the charity and through the events the company attends throughout the year.
Chris Brown, owner and managing director of Ethos, said: “Wellspring was established in 2003 and has since become a ‘go to’ for people in distress who are looking to restore hope, develop resilience and facilitate positive change in their lives.
“To be able to support people on that journey is a privilege and I hope in doing so we can touch peoples’ lives for the better.
Emily Fullarton, director at Wellspring, said: “We are very grateful to Ethos for the company’s hard work in supporting the service we offer. The company’s commitment to us for a 12-month period makes it easier for us as a charity to provide a steady flow of support to individuals who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford the help they need.
“The Ethos funds are going directly towards counselling and as, in the last two years we have seen an increase in the number of people seeking support, the partnership couldn’t have come at a better time.”
