Fundraising for Stockport Mind in 2019

2019 has begun well in terms of local people kindly contacting us to say they are raising vital funds to support our local mental health services. A number of people and organisations are already fundraising for us, as well as others who are in the process of making plans for events including marathons and charity cycles.

Below are some of the efforts that are already underway. Thank you so much to everyone involved and we’re looking forward to seeing what this year holds.

Annie’s run

Annie will be taking part in the Heaton Park 9 mile run in April and the Manchester Half Marathon in May, to raise funds for us. She said: “Mind are very close to the family, particularly Stockport Mind. Your mental health is the most important thing you own, if you struggle to take care of it yourself, there are people here to support you.”

 

Good luck to Annie with the training and both runs! You can donate to her effort here.

Brammer

Every month, Brammer has an in-house lottery where staff across the company put in £1 and a random name is drawn out. Half of the winnings are donated to a charity chosen by the winner. Charlotte from the team recently won and kindly chose us as her charity. She said: “Previously being based in Stockport and being a big believer of supporting mental health services it was a no-brainer to pick yourselves 🙂 ”

 

Shrigley Hall Hotel

The Hotel have begun selling walking maps in aid of our services, and are looking to arrange some exciting fundraising events this year. We’re looking forward to working together.

 

If you might like to raise funds for us in some way this year, please feel free to contact us on 0161 480 7393 or email info@stockportmind.org.uk and we can help to support you with developing ideas or promoting what you’re doing.

We are also looking to put a team together for a charity swimathon in March. You can find out about that here.
