Thursday 14th November marked the annual charity ball for midlands-based mental health and well-being charity, The Kaleidoscope Plus Group.

Over 200 guests attended the event at Park Regis Birmingham, in a bid to raise money to help tackle the stigma attached to mental health.

Familiar faces such as Paul Chuckle, Will Mellor and Rustie-Lee, were also seen at the annual event, showing their support for the charity.

Monica, the CEO of The Kaleidoscope Plus Group said: ‘I’m really pleased that we have raised this amount. Mental health certainly does not discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life – young and old, rich and poor, regardless of where you come from. It is absolutely not an issue that can simply be ignored and demand for the charity’s services is continually increasing – without these generous donations, we cannot continue our good work and I’m so thrilled everyone came together to help.’

The aim of the event was to raise awareness for suicide prevention, following the launch of their national suicide prevention text line service, in partnership with Shout and The Nick Mowl Cup.

This new service launched in October, in line with World Mental Health Day and has been a goal of The Kaleidoscope Plus Group’s for many years. The charity ball was in celebration of this achievement, but also a recognition to the fact there is a rise in demand for mental health services.

All proceeds raised on the night will assist in funding The Kaleidoscope Plus Group’s support services, training provision and their ongoing campaign to tackle the stigma attached to mental health.
