Reset Fundraiser Ball

Date: September 29, 2018

Time: all day

Location: Haigh Hall, Wigan

Reset is all about positive mental health and having that fresh start when people need it most.
Our primary aim is to make people in our community smile again when the odds have been stacked against them.
Our motto is #letsmakewigansmileagain

We have had unbelievable success stories already with 100s of people across our borough already benefiting and feeling great, with people getting back to work after years of unemployment, getting out and getting fit, loosing weight, socialising, quitting smoking, and even beginning to simply feel happy again after years of suffering from anxiety.
Kate Musgrave and her family believe that it was from the practices they learned at reset that got them through their darkest times when their son Archie battled meningitis.
That is why we decided to come together and help others together by organising the fundraiser ball.
We have 5 tables remaining we would like to sell tickets for and would welcome any donations of prizes at all.
