#WinchesterConnects News: Winchester Youth Counselling gets major cash boost

Winchester Youth Counselling, a local organization offering therapy and support for the Districts’ young people, has received a cash donation of £5,000 after being nominated for the grant by HSBC Local Hero Debbie Lockett.

A cheque was handed over to WYC trustees Nick Bell, Jill Guppy and Sian Searles on 15 July. The cash will boost the organization’s capacity to support more local young people, suffering anxiety, stress or depression.

Debbie won the HSBC Local Hero award in June for organizing a daily delivery of hot meals for vulnerable people after lockdown started in March. Meals were provided by  catering firm Red Radish and delivered by a team of volunteers. As the winner of HSBC Local Hero, Debbie was awarded £5000 to donate to her chosen charity. WYC is based at The Trinity Centre in Winchester and can be contacted on 01962 820444.
