Shipshape for Southmead
12:41 pm, March 24, 2017
Those of you who follow Southmead Project’s CEO Dr Mike Peirce on LinkedIn or Twitter will know that he’s taking to the water in aid of the charity. As Mike revealed earlier this week, he’ll be rowing along the Kennet & Avon Canal from Wiltshire to London this autumn with friend and Southmead colleague Pete Wraith.
Their efforts are all in aid of Southmead Project so that we can continue to provide therapeutic and practical support to adult survivors of child abuse.
Mike says: “There remains a distinct lack of acknowledgement of the correlation between child abuse and later self-harm, scant regard for those who have experienced such and little or no consideration given to the cost – in financial terms and, sadly, even less in human terms.”
More details of Mike and Pete’s efforts will be announced here and on our Twitter feed in the coming weeks.See article >
