As a charity we need the support of fundraisers and donors to help us support the people in our communities. We often find that fundraisers aren’t aware that we are an independant charity and funds raised in the name of Mind don’t go to the local charity.

If you would like to keep the money local, fundraise for Mind in West Essex; like these amazing people below! 

Corporate fundraisers

Inner Wheel – Charity of the Year

Anne Crawford from the Inner Wheel at Harlow who has chosen us as the group’s charity this year. They have just held a garden party for us and raised over £800 and continue to fundraise throughout the year.
