The next fabulous quiz night is arranged for April 5th at the Stute, home of Ilkeston Rugby Club.
Bring your friends, your knowledge and leave your phone at home for an enjoyable evening. Only £2 per person with a cash prize for the winning team. There will be a raffle with some great prizes too.
Food will be provided and drinks are available for purchase at the bar.
Ilkeston RUFC have invited WTF to Elk Stock, which will give us significant opportunities to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing whilst raising much needed funds.
This will support us to run further awareness campaign in schools, colleges and community groups.
We’re really looking forward to sharing our message and talking with our local communities about the support, advice and guidance available for children and young people, in particular.
In 2020, Papyrus will organise a HopeWalk across the country and encourage as many people as possible to come together with one common aim: to shatter the stigma and to get conversations about suicide started.
We will walk between West Hallam (where Will lived) and the City Ground in Nottingham (where Will’s favourite football team play) on a date to be arranged.
We aim to create a purple wave of awareness so please get in touch if you want to be involved.
Our signature event: our celebration of Will’s life.
This year we cannot all meet together. So instead we are running Willfest 20 online !
We will be doing some of his favourite things: enjoying live music, good food, and even better beer, and being with friends. Please join us, in your back garden; dress up, dress down, with food, without, but have your dancing boots ready, and we’ll see you from our garden to celebrate the life of a brilliant young man taken too soon.
We look forward to a different but fabulous Willfest!
