Other ways to donate With your help we can continue to prioritise the most vulnerable people in our community who are missed by other services and work to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health with increased understanding and awareness. Fundraise for us One of the most popular ways people fundraise for us is through an event or sponsorship. Not only are you raising vital funds, but your also raising awareness and spreading the word about mental health. You might have a go at a sponsored walk, run or swim, or hold a pub quiz or dinner party. Whatever you want to do – it'll be fun and you'll be supporting a great cause at the same time. Thinking of fundraising for us, but not sure where to start? Contact Lorna on 01642 257067. We will help you through the process with sponsor forms, setting up an events page, collecting donations and promotion through newspapers and social media.

Make a gift in celebration Whether it's a wedding, birthday, anniversary or retirement why not celebrate by asking friends and family to donate to Mind and help us continue providing vital services to those who experience mental distress. The easiest way to collect donations in celebration is to set up an online fundraising page via our JustGiving page. You can personalise your page and then email the link, allowing your friends and family to donate easily at the click of a button. JustGiving page Make a gift in memory Giving in memory is a special way to honour the memory of a loved one, friend, family member or colleague. Collecting donations instead of flowers at a funeral can help us to continue to provide vital support for everyone affected by mental health problems. Most funeral directors are willing to collect donations in lieu of flowers, handling the administration of these gifts for you and making sure they are passed to us. You can also fundraise in memory of a loved one via our JustGiving page, telling the story of the person you are remembering if you wish. What we do with your money From getting in touch with us about fundraising to when the donation is received - we'll ask you where you'd like the money to go. It could be an area such as Stockton or Middlesbrough or it could be a particular cause from young people to suicide prevention and service costs. It's up to you where you'd like the money to go and we can update you within one year on how you've benefited the charity.
