We truly value our sponsors and ambassadors, sharing our passion, vision & aims and also supporting us through raising funds. All fundraising and donations contribute towards us making support more accessible for our community and expanding our services.
We want to say a huge thank you to the Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation who have awarded us a grant towards being able to employ a Practice Administration Co-ordinator to support in the expansion of Sunrise Wellbeing. We were honoured to welcome Trustee, Dave Andrews to our centre and are truly grateful for his kind feedback and the support of the Foundation.
” We were left with a very positive view of a thriving and growing CIC doing excellent work both in service provision and training of service providers. The staff we met were obviously passionate about what they do, are knowledgeable and full of creative ideas. Shelley, the founder and MD, is a powerhouse of ideas and enthusiasm.”
We were successful in receiving a SHIRE Community Grant enabling us to fund our centre staff team up until April 2023 and for our Practice Assistant to qualify as an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant, launching our wonderful ELSA support service to children & families. We could not provide our services without this support and funding, we are extremely grateful.
This year, we have been granted funds for a variety of projects and resources which we are truly grateful for. These include money to fund laptops for our team, resources for our emotional literacy support workshops for children and donations to support our reduced cost therapy services. A HUGE Thank you to the following for your wonderful support.
A huge thank you to James Rimmer and his Mum Lisa for donating so many Home Eddie Teddy Bears & ‘The Lost Star’ books to our centre. James created these beautiful teddy bears to support children’s wellbeing and to provide them with a sense of safety and comfort during challenging times. It is great to welcome James as a Sunrise Ambassador, raising awareness of how reaching out for support & developing a belief in yourself can lead to managing your difficulties with a wonderful cheerleading squad around you.
Thank you to Emma at The Imperfect Wood Co for becoming our first sponsor. Emma’s story and the meaning of her work is truly inspirational & heartwarming – ‘even with imperfections we can create something beautiful’ Seeing the right quote just when you need it can be so powerful.

We are very grateful to Wendy who frequently donates her wonderful Mood Stars to our centre. The wonderful stars support children from early years upwards with emotional literacy & emotional development. Within our therapeutic work they help children to put into words how they feel, to identify where in their body they experience certain emotions and to recognise positive and tricky feelings when navigating situations. My Mood Stars are fantastic and assist us in helping children to develop an emotional toolkit of strategies.
“The eight *My Mood Stars enable children to immerse themselves in imaginative play, either by themselves or with others. This offers a fun opportunity for children to talk about how they are feeling. The Stars, Timid, Sad, Angry, Happy, Sleepy, Surprised, Scared, and Silly can be used to set the scene for endless stories and games to be played with a downloadable activity sheet.”
*My Mood Stars are made of Velboa and Tricot fabric both of which are biodegradable at the end of their lives.
