Receiving Help

An important step in receiving help is having the courage to admit you need it.

Congratulations on being here.

Whether you need someone to talk to or are in a difficult situation financially, we believe that “A problem shared is a problem halved”. 

For a totally discreet and non-judgemental request for help, whatever the reason, use the contact form to get in touch. 




    We have created a 'pool' where we can access funds to help ease your worries in the short term. These are 'no-questions asked' payments and you will not be required to pay them back.



    Within our network we have qualified Fitness Gurus, Yoga Teachers and people who have shed many stones over the years. Who better to help with your own fitness goals than those you have danced side by side with over the years?



    Yes... We are all that little bit mental in our own way here, which is why we understand how important it is to have a support network on hand.

    If you are feeling low and need someone to talk to, we are here.

    The profits for all merchandise sold go directly into the Support Fund.

    We do not require anyone to make large donations. Our strength is in our numbers.

    Yes. Through the generosity of our regular contributors and money raised via merchandise sales specific to Family237, we aim to fill our funding ‘Pool’.

    The ‘Pool’ is a unique PayPal account and is monitored closely by a board of members known as ‘The Team’ to ensure no funds are touched without the consent of all. Access to the account is held by several people who are all trusted 100%.

    There is no timeline as to when the funds must be used. Circumstances will dictate when we need to use them.

    There is no limit to the amount you can request. All requests are considered.

    Anyone who contributes regularly into the fund can ask to know how much is in there at any given time.

    As time progresses we will consult with our regular contributors to discuss options, depending on how much cash accumulates.

    Room 237 at the Montepiedra Hotel was the regular home for Steve & Amanda Reed, every year that VBW took place in Campoamor.

    When Amanda was taken ill with Cancer, ‘The VB Family’ came together in solidarity to show love and support for one of its most cherished members. It was this love and support that re-confirmed just how important it is to have good people by your side through thick and thin.

    Amanda Reed passed away in November 2021.
