Hampshire Sheen Customers Raise £120.00 for ‘Mind’ Charity

Remember our Christmas competition to raise charity for Mind, the mental health charity?

The competition was won by Andrew Slack who retired just the week before the live draw on our social media channels on 23rd December. He received his prize shortly after Christmas, and we hope he enjoys his bumper win.

Donation sent

After the Christmas break, we worked out that after all the entries and costs involved, we could donate a super £120.00 to Mind on 4th January.

The email we received after the donation reads:

Dear Martin,

Thank you for your kind donation of £120. We really appreciate it.

Your donation will support vital helplines, provide life-saving information and maintain online peer support services for people when they need it most. With your donation, we can continue to campaign and protect the rights of people with mental health problems.

Mental health isn’t hidden anymore. It’s on the front pages. On the political agenda. Spoken about by royalty. For millions of people, mental health is now something to be honest about – not ashamed of.

With the support of people like you, the Mind community has been at the heart of this transformation.

Here are some of the things we’re proud of from our latest impact report:

In one year

  • Mind responded to over 128,000 queries to our support and information helpline
  • our mental health information was accessed 21.4 million times
  • almost 2 million people had a conversation about mental health as a result of Time to Talk Day.

But we know there’s much more to do.

Thank you again for your valuable support. With your help, we will not give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.

Income & Operations Manager   

Your support of the competition will help Mind with it’s important work.

Everyone has mental health – good or bad, with many of them going undiagnosed for long periods. Many of them take up woodturning to alleviate their symptoms as a coping mechanism. Turning is therapy!

If you joined in the competition, thank you very much! Your participation is helping people already and we hope will join in the next one.

Spread the Inspiration
