Mark Turner is taking part in the Prudential 100 event on 30th July 2017 to raise money for Mind.
Here is what Mark had to say:
“I’ve wanted to do something on behalf of Mind for a long time, to support the great work they do, and this year I’ve secured a place in the Prudential 100 event – a 100 mile bike ride that follows the Olympic 2012 road race route. Cycling for me provides a cheap mode of transport, but more importantly gets me exercising which I find a great antidote to a stressful job. Thanks for reading and thanks for any donation!”

On Tuesday 11th July we are holding a Carers Focus Group.
The focus of this group will be to generate new ideas for the 2017-2018 Carers Strategy.
It will be held at Fairfield House, 10 Altyre Road, East Croydon, Surrey, CR0 5LA at 6pm by Stephen Bahooshy, Carers & Independent Sector Commissioning Manager from Croydon Council.
For more information contact Angela Christinis on 020 8688 1210 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mind has been funded by Croydon Council to run a hoarding prevention project.
The purpose of the project is to provide free group counselling sessions to participants in order to help them examine why they collect items that clutter the home and what would it be like to consider letting some of these go.
This will be a 6 fortnightly group counselling session plus an hour a week with a De-Clutter Buddy to support clients with the decluttering.
Please phone 020 8763 2064 for more information and/or an information pack.
We have an afternoon of relaxation and fun planned on Friday for Carers Week.
There will be yoga, manicures, mindfulness, tea & cake and goodie bags.
Come and join us at Fairfield House, 10 Altyre Road, East Croydon, CR0 5LA on Friday 16th June, 1pm-4pm.

We were delighted to learn that the Croydon Relief in Need Charity had awarded us a grant of £15,000 towards our work. The money will be used to support our Welfare Benefits Advice Service. In particular, we will add more volunteers who can support people at benefit appeals and medical assessments.
