Fundraising for CPSL Mind

Support us to support mental health and wellbeing during the Coronavirus pandemic

Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, many people will feel anxious, lonely or stressed as they self-isolate or experience other pressures in their home or working life.

Support our Covid-19 Appeal and help us to support hundreds of local people looking for mental health and wellbeing support each week.

People of all ages are also taking on the 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, to practising mindfulness for 26 minutes, to reading 26 books, to holding online workouts or coffee mornings with 26 friends.

If you would like to skip the challenges by making a donation directly to our cause please visit our JustGiving page.

 

How can you fundraise for us?

Whatever your fundraising idea – be it having a cake sale or climbing a mountain – we would be delighted to hear from you. If you’re looking for some inspiration check out Aidan Joy’s story of cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats!

If you are representing a local company or sports club, we would be over the moon if you would consider partnering with us as your Charity of the Year.

How does your money make a difference?

By raising funds for Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind you will be helping us to support local people to recover from mental health problems. You will also be supporting our mission to tackle stigma and to raise awareness of the need for all of us to look after our mental health.

One example of the impact that your money has is the story of Katie Wells. Katie accessed our Perinatal Services when her son was 6 months old and she was experiencing severe mental health issues. After receiving support, Katie felt empowered and inspired to move forward with her life and to give back to help other Mums who have had similar experiences. Read her story here.

How we will support you!

Whatever you choose to do to support us, we’re here to make it as easy and as fun as possible. We will work with you on your event and provide you with tips and advice on your planning and preparation. We can supply you with donation pots and t-shirts and we will also help promote your event/activity through social media and the local press.
