Christmas Raffle for Manchester Mind (reg Charity 219830)
Last year we had a raffle at Christmas and raised money for Crisis at Christmas. This year we wanted to run another one and decided to choose a local charity rather than national charity and having supported Manchester Mind before and learning about the fantastic mental health support they provide for local residents we decided we would try to raise some money and their profile at the same time.
Here’s a little bit about what they do:
“Manchester Mind is in independent local mental health charity which delivers services to young people and adults. Our vision is of a city that promotes good mental health and treats people with mental health problems positively, fairly and with respect.
We are committed to improving the lives of people with mental health needs. We promote the health and wellbeing of people affected by mental distress and take a positive approach to mental health, challenging stereotypes and discrimination.
We listen to and respect people who use our services, value their experiences and place them at the centre of service delivery and development. We enable people with mental health needs to improve their health and wellbeing to reach their full potential. We work with people so they can live more successfully in their communities. Above all, we aim to create a positive future for people who use our services or volunteer.”
Lots of people don’t realise that charities like Manchester Mind rely on donations so that they can provide their invaluable services. If you want to find out more about Manchester Mind, you can read about them here.
Each of our raffle tickets costs just £1 and all of the proceeds will go directly to Manchester Mind alongside a donation from our Co-op. The winner of the raffle will receive our fabulous hamper filled with lots of healthy goodies. If you are entering our raffle, good luck!
