World Mental Health Day

Fundraising held a number of events to mark and celebrate World Mental Health Day which ran from Wednesday 22nd September to Sunday 10th October 2010. We officially launched World Mental Health Day on Wednesday 22nd September at the Long Gallery, Stormont. The event was well attended by staff, service users, commissioners, MLA’s, Councillors and local Mayors.

There was a coffee morning on Friday 8th October at Central Office. The coffee morning raised a total of £109.80.

A street collection was held on Saturday 9th October in Belfast which raised a total of £720.19.

A Treasure Hunt was held on Sunday 10th October at the Secret Garden which raised £194.81(entrance fees/donations), Coffee Shop Sales £150.00 and £150 of donations.

As well as all of this 18 schemes ran a coffee morning/awareness events on Friday 8th October which raised a total of £1,213.87 to date.

Overall World Mental Health Event has raised a total of £2538.67 to date.

I would like to thank everyone who attended and supported the events, the scheme staff and service users for organizing the coffee morning, staff and trainees at the Secret Garden. A special thank you to all those individuals who helped out at the collection in Belfast, treasure hunt and all those who were kind enough to bake cakes and cupcakes for the coffee morning held at Central Office.
