by - Thursday, May 15, 2014

A year into my A levels and life seems already pretty fast track of a pace however, for one young man (a good friend of mine too) known for his technical footwork on the court yet teamwork in hand alongside his love for Basketball.  Andrew Ball, 18 has been named fundraiser of the day by the London Metro paper amongst, the local paper The Brighouse Echo and other local papers highlighting his tremendous mission of raising funds for Bipolar UK. 



After losing his mum to the condition when she committed suicide ten years ago.
 “I was just 8 years old I came home from school after an ordinary day to discover that I would never see my mum again. At that age I didn’t know much, all I knew is that some days my mum was so happy it was unbelievable and then on other days my mum would stay in bed depressed. My mum had bipolar the majority of her life and at the age of 44 bipolar caused her to kill herself because it made her think that my life would be better without her, I have now lived 9 years without a mum, I can’t change what has happened but I can try and help others who are going through the same pain and suffering that my mum went through.” 


Throughout starting his campaign of raising funds through various activities from car washes, raffles, charity party, bun sales, and latest to date a 15,000 ft skydive. The donations of which Andrew has raised has been contributed by myself, friends, relatives, students and members of staff at Rastrick High School and Sixth Form amongst, the host of audience who have donated through the  ‘Just Giving’ page especially created for the cause.

Now after reaching his previous targets of £500-£4000 Andrew has set himself to exceed to the £5000 mark. Dear readers on behalf of Andrew who has allowed me to run this article, I would like to invite you to donate in Andrew’s cause of raising funds to aid people with Bipolar.
“Just helping other people that need it because most of us can all give something no matter how much you give at least you will have the feeling that you have helped someone today!”

Every donation which is given through the ‘Just Giving’ page will be going to Bipolar UK whilst, every donation is very much appreciated. As they say ‘Every Little Helps’.
