The Hickman Family annual mental health ball 2021/22 continues to raise incredible sums
In April 2020, Katie Hickman contacted Steve Phillip via LinkedIn, worried about her husband who was struggling with his mental health. After what had been a incredibly tough year supporting her husband, Katie decided she wanted to give something back to the Charities and NHS teams who had been there for her, this included The Jordan Legacy.
On Saturday November 21st, 2021, together with her family, Katie held the very first Annual Hickman Mental Health Ball.
When she first considered putting on this event, Katie thought it would be a few members of her family and friends who would get together and raise a few hundred pounds for The Jordan Legacy and the Eastbourne Department of Psychiatry. By the end of the evening, they had raised raised a staggering £7462.50!
In November 2022, Katie and her family held their second annual Hickman Ball in Tunbridge Wells and The Jordan Legacy’s Steve Phillip and his wife Laurence joined everyone there for another incredible night of fundraising. Steve also delivered a short talk on topic of mental health and suicide. Although fewer people were able to attend the 2022 event, they still managed to raise an incredible £4600!
