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!
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.

We are delighted to have been chosen by Harlow Primark as their Charity of the Year. Some daredevils will be parachute jumping, there will be Talking Tea Parties, Wear Purple for the day and much more. Keep your eyes peeled and support where you can.
Project and event fundraising
Mark Williams – Naked Speed
84 men die by suicide each week in the UK, it is the biggest killer of men aged under 45. Something Mark wants to prevent.
Over the next few months Mark will be custom building a unique motorbike for auction. You can support the build by donating here. Mark had devoted a lot of time to the project and still has a way to go. If you would like to help, with part, donations or generally supporting him, please get in touch.
Please take a moment to read his full press release here.

Charity Football Match
One in six of us will be affected by mental illness at some point in our lives. In the UK, there are up to 10 million people suffering from mental health problems at any one time. However, the impact of mental illness extends far further than the person who experiences it; experts estimate six to 10 more people are affected.
To try and help make a small difference (and contribution) within the local area, we have set up a charity match on the 19th of October at Harlow Football Club, which we hope will raise a target of £500. Gates open at 19:00.
The match is already paid for, so all contributions will go directly to charity – Mind In West Essex.
The admission is free and the bar is open prior, during and after the match.
Please give generously to either our just giving page, or alternatively contribute to the buckets on the evening.
Thanks for reading, lets try and make a small difference to something which we all (from time to time), take for granted.
Good mental health.
Joseph and the team.
