Fresh Start – new beginnings are delighted to announce an Afternoon tea at Norfolk Showground on Friday 15th November 2019 at 1.00pm for a very special afternoon tea experience. The charity will be joined by four inspiring speakers who will share their own individual insight into sexual abuse in children. Current figures suggest that over 8,000 children within Norfolk have been sexually abused.
The local children’s charity provides therapeutic support to children aged up to 21 years old in Suffolk and Norfolk, who have experienced sexual abuse. By attending this event, you will be able to help us raise awareness of the work of Fresh Start new beginnings and help us work with children who need our help.
Tickets are only £20.00 per person which includes a welcome drink on arrival, the opportunity for a bit of shopping, which includes a variety of local stalls offering a selection of beauty products, gifts and wellbeing opportunities before sitting down for your afternoon tea at 2.00pm.
We are delighted to announce that some renowned speakers will be attending, including;
