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!
