Sarah's Story

'I first heard of CAUSE through the charity's signature fundraising event - Strictly for CAUSE.  I signed up to take part in 2015 and never look back!  What an experience!  I never enjoyed anything so much - learning about the charity, about mental illness, about the support families and friends need so much whilst supporting a loved one with a serious mental illness and of course learning how to waltz and meeting an array of new friends - what more would you wish for?  One Strictly led to another and I have just finished 2017 Strictly season and am about to embark on CAUSE's latest new fundraising event 'Strictly Jigs and Reels'.

As a former PR manager for Connect Total Communications, I was able to partner up the company with the charity and am delighted since to be appointed as a Corporate Ambassador for CAUSE. So what does that mean - I try to help connect CAUSE to other companies and corporate networks and try to get other people involved in the charity through their workplace.

I thoroughly enjoy my involvement with this wonderful local charity and know it has given me back so much in return - so please open a door for CAUSE if you can - doing so will make you feel so good!'
