Get together with your favourite people this December for a crafty virtual fundraiser. Spend an afternoon folding, stitching and sticking, and raise money to make sure no one in Teesside has to face a mental health problem alone.

We may not be able to meet up over the Christmas period in the same way, but you can still bring friends and family together by hosting a Christmas Crafternoon online. We’ll give you everything you need to make it a fun, festive afternoon.

What do I need?

All you need is some basic supplies and a tablet, computer or phone, and you’ll be ready to go. Whether it’s handmade
cards, happy jars, or your own favourite Christmas craft, our guide will give you all the tips you need to set up your own Virtual Crafternoon.

You can download our free crafternoon guide here.

National Mind have also provided free resources like templates and posters to get you started. Just remember if you're fundraising for us you will need to donate the money you raise directly to Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind. You can do this by using our donate button or setting up a Just Giving page.

If you’ve got any questions, we’d love to hear from you. Send us an email at [email protected] or call us on 07701 325 028.
