Mind in Croydon Benefits from Store Opening
Mind in Croydon were very happy to be involved in The Southern Co-operative’s new store opening event in Shirley on the 4th August. Jacqui Dyce from our Social Networking Service was on hand to accept a £500 donation as part of the event.
Mind in Croydon’s CEO, Richard Pacitti, said, “We were very pleased to be involved in the opening of the new Co-operative store in Shirley. The very generous donation made to us will help us to provide vital service to people in Croydon with mental health problems and their carers. Last year we saw record numbers of people coming to us for the help and support that they need and donations such as this enable us to staff our infoline and fund essential services such as the Hub which supports more than 500 people each year and prevents them from becoming lonely and isolated”.
