“If it wasn’t for Venture Trust, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I was in a bad place and really needed support to help me get my life back on track. Venture Trust has done that. The course helped me build my confidence, learn new skills and do the things I want to do.”
Cassie previously took part in Venture Trust’s Inspiring Young Futures programme and following her time with us is working to help other young people who are suffering from abuse, depression, anxiety or other challenging life circumstances.
“The impact Venture Trust has had on me, I want to have that impact on somebody else who has been in similar situations.”
Cassie is indeed inspiring, and since completing the programme has returned to support other participants, opened an international conference in front of over 600 people, and run two bake sales in aid of Venture Trust!
Cassie’s second bake sale took place on Valentines Day, in the foyer of the building where Venture Trust has its main office. Cassie got friends, family and Venture Trust staff baking in support, and was joined by staff from one of Venture Trust’s funders, People’s Postcode Lottery who had given their time to volunteer and support the event (and had some great sales patter!).
Across all her fundraising efforts, Cassie has raised over £800 for Venture Trust to support more people to benefit like she did.
