Our Board of Heroes
Welcome to our Board of Heroes
During the last few months the Northampton and District Mind team have been working hard to ensure that our mental health services remain accessible to all those who need them and when they need them. Funding cuts and unexpected events such as the corona virus pandemic, has meant that many people are struggling to access the services they so desperately need, in order to support them in challenging times.
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all those who have supported us throughout, in the past, today and also for tomorrow.
Our heroes for this week include:
Robert Foot at Charles Roofing for going over and above doing our roof.
Rob has spent many months, tirelessly and painstakingly removing decades old roofing and creating a safe and much more secure roof for the Northampton and District Mind service, this means that we can continue to offer a safe place offering support to those who need it.
Nigel, Vicky and the CA Team for decorating/painting and shaping our building for free!!
Shop Zero / "Bags of Good" who have delivered food bags to us for free helping our vulnerable service users
This unprecedented turn of events has locked down people from all walks of life and all economic situations.
The impact of such a widespread change in how we live our lives, can cause anxiety and panic even among those who have never suffered with their mental health before.
In times like these it is even more important that services can work together in order to support the needs of the local community.
On this page we want to say a huge thankyou to those individuals and companies which have continued to raise money for Northampton and District Mind.
This thoughtfulness allows us to continue to support people in the community and reach out to others who need us in these troubled times.
A big shout-out to the following people and companies who are there in these times of need:
Northamptonshire Community Foundation which granted £3,000 to allow us to continue to support people in the community, while face-to-face interactions are suspended, or cut back.
Gina Scarsbook and her family, who are raising money in memory of her brother through our Just Giving pages.
Singer Jenna H from Brackley, who is singing in her street every Saturday evening and helping to raise funds.
Thrapston Mayor Karen Draycott, who chose us as her Charity of the Year.
Poet ‘Birdy’ who is writing her poems and donating to Mind.
Mandy Such, who raised money through her craft sales.
