A clinical nutritionist, who was once on the verge of a serious eating disorder, will share her journey with guests as part of the Hume Bank Charity Event next month.
Jessica Sepel, who is also a popular author and blogger, will be special guest at an event designed to assist a local group in bringing eating disorder treatment options to the border.
The North East Eating Disorders Support Group (NEEDS) was established by two local mothers Meryl Wilcox and Sue van de Ven and aims to provide support for families and carers of people with an eating disorder.
“Hume’s Charity event will assist NEEDS to bring necessary training and resources to the region so carers are more educated and skilled to support their loved ones through what can be such a long and protracted illness,” said Co-Founder Meryl Wilcox.
“At Hume, we recognise that these extraordinary members of our local community should not have to go through the considerable personal strain and huge responsibility they have, alone,” said Andrew de Graaff, Chief Customer Officer and Acting CEO – Hume Bank.
“The aim of this year’s event is to raise funds and more importantly awareness for NEEDS Group in the hope to send a powerful message about the seriousness of eating disorders and the desperate need to have access to appropriate treatment and care.
“We are privileged to be able to get behind the NEEDS Group and are confident that this will make a difference,” he said.
