#CrushtheHush2021 Success – NCS Team 5Star fundraised £300 and Create ArtWorks for Upcoming Exhibition: Quetzal Stories of Change opening on 18th September 2021. Their support enables more female survivors of childhood sexual abuse living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to access free counselling sessions to continue their journey towards recovery.

The following article report on the activities carried out by the NCS Team 5Star who successfully fundraised so far £300 for Quetzal and created artworks for our upcoming exhibition – Quetzal Stories of Change. You can still support them by donating here.

A Big Thank you to the NCS Team 5 Star as well as Leicester Education Business College from Quezal and all our supporters

We are so appreciative for all the efforts you have put through and that despite the change of plans, you rose to the challenge. We honestly appreciate all the kind donations. It’s been a pleasure working with NCS. We were so keen to be picked that we even created a video with Dhara, our volunteer for the occasion and you picked us, thank you!!! Our next steps at Quetzal is to collect the artworks, frame it and get ready for the exhibition.

We hope to see you there!!!
