Our Charity of the Year for 2021 is Stockport Mind, an independent mental health charity, affiliated to national Mind but don’t receive core funding, so must raise their own funds, that offers friendly, accessible support and information to promote wellbeing in the community.
They aim to provide high quality, appropriate services in Stockport and Cheshire East, raise awareness for mental health to reduce stigma and discrimination, work within a recovery framework and to involve people with experience of mental health problems in every aspect of their work.
Over the next year we will be taking part in a variety of fundraising activities of which the proceeds will be donated to Stockport & District Mind. Our first fundraising activity will be a step challenge taking place from the 1st – 31st of July 2021 where the company aims to do “1 Million for Mind” by the end of the month.
Due to the global events of the past year, it was important for us to support a local charity who do not get as much attention or donations. We also recognized that, because of lockdown, more people have been struggling with their mental health which is why choosing a charity that looks after the mental wellness of the community was integral to us.
If you would like to support our “1 Million for Mind” step challenge, then you can make a donation on our JustGiving page where all the proceeds will go to Stockport Mind. If you cannot donate, sharing the page would also be appreciated.
