In July 2015, just 2 days before her 31st birthday our wonderful talented daughter Katie tragically lost her fight for life.

Katie's battle wasn't with one of the well-known illnesses like cancer, her fight was internal - with her own mental health. After years of suffering in silence she sought help but, despite 7 months in an acute mental health ward and a strong, loving supportive network of family and friends, she took her own life the day before she was due to go home.

In her memory we're organising a Quiz, Supper & Auction to raise money for the Acorn Centre ‘Mind in Harrogate’, who provide vital help and unquestioning support for people experiencing any kind of mental distress.

Katie's hospitalisation was an extreme solution which did little to help her condition and aggravated her symptoms, but it was all that was on offer. We're ever aware that perhaps if she had taken advantage of the facilities offered at the Acorn Centre that may have led her to a different choice on that fateful day.

Help us to help others who are struggling with their mental health so that their choice in a time of crisis may be different to Katie's.

Event details

Charity Quiz Supper and Auction Evening

Help raise in excess of £10,000 for Mind in Harrogate at the Acorn Centre


Many local and national businesses pledged fantastic lots to help us reach our £10,000 target. We set ourselves an ambitious target simply because it needs to be achieved and even though we've reached it we'd still like to make more! 

Our aim is to build a much needed Quiet Room at the Acorn Centre and to contribute towards general refurbishment and the installation of a lift to assist service users with disabilities.  You simply cannot believe just how much this will help.

Remember 1 in 4 people suffer from mental health problems of one kind or another. This is no longer a taboo subject -  mental health is important to us all and needs to be spoken about without the stigma it's had in past years.

Please donate anything you can, whatever you give will help us to exceed our goal by even more - doing nothing is not an option!
