The Estates Department carried out another year of fantastic fund raising in 2017 for their chosen charity, ‘Mind’. Estates choose a different charity each year and Mind was nominated by Emily Mason, Environmental Sustainability Assistant. Emily explained why she had put forward Mind, “I nominated Mind as they are a charity that, now more than ever, are crucial for helping people at crisis point, and preventing people who struggle with their mental health, from reaching crisis point”.
Estates collected various donations throughout the year as well as holding a successful Estates staff raffle and raised the tremendous total of £1834.14. On receipt of the cheque, a spokesperson from Mind said, “We would like to say a huge thank you. It is important for us to make sure everyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for support and advice”.
