StandUp4PAPYRUS How it all began

The event was the creation of Richard Price, after losing a friend through suicide he spent time with his friends family who informed him about the support they had received from PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide and he was inspired to help raise funds for this wonderful charity.

When interviewed leading up up to the event, Richard commented:

“I am passionate about helping this charity. Everybody involved from the venue to the performers, technicians and caterers are all donating their services for the charity.”

Richard started to piece together his events team and find a venue.

The Pear Tree Inn Hotel in Smite

After canvassing the Worcester area for a suitable venue we received an offer from the Pear Tree Inn Hotel in Smite, they offered to donate their fantastic large function room and staff to ensure a successful evening. Donna Blundell and her team were amazing and we will be forever grateful to them for what they did for us.

Volunteers Who Stepped Up & Answered the Call

This event took a lot of support to promote and run on the night too, PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide had an ongoing involvement leading up to and during the event, the team on the night were headed up by Harriott Foster and Launa Brookes, two remarkable people who were able to talk to the audience and provide information about the charity as well as ensuring the generous on the night donations.

We received a tonne of prize donations from the local businesses in the Worcestershire area, one of the key reasons for the success of the prize donations was that they were obtained by one of our volunteers, Beth Allcock. Richard Price was able to obtain a squad signed football (With certificate of Authenticity) from West Bromwich Albion Football Club. and Elliot McDonald was able to obtain a squad signed football and Shirt (Both With certificate of Authenticity) from Manchester United Football Club. All prizes obtained were raffled off and generated a huge amount of cash for PAPYRUS.

Posters and flyers were distributed throughout Worcester, Droitwich, Ledbury, Malvern, and Pershore, Special thanks go out to Liz McDonald and her Team, and Dominique Cupples for her late night shifts.

Making the Show... The Show

Our Sponsors more than did their part to ensure the event was a visual and audio success. Midlands Leisure Group and Waveform Live provided Sound & lighting solutions with Microphone systems and Screen Projectors.

The Set design was created and set up by Ad J Hartshorne of PA Customs, this included the screen and signage.
