Around 6,000 people take their own lives in the UK each year. In July 2017 our treasured friend Fia Theobald became one of them. Like many of those struggling the current system for dealing with mental health failed her. We want to change that.
Viva la Fia is an annual not for profit festival to raise money to provide support to those who aren’t getting the help they need from the current mental health system through our community group Fia Not.
Our premier event on October 6th will be headlined by Victors and feature local heroes Yard Wars, Fielding, Hotrod Hooliganz and more in an all day spectacular. Tickets will be available soon from Warehouse23 and selected outlets around West Yorkshire, this will be an event not to be missed.
This is a not for profit event run by volunteers, all profit on the day will go towards the community group The Fia Not Campaign set up by Fia’s mum to help young people in crisis, giving them the support they need without judgement and sign posting them to services to get them the help they need.
