We were delighted to be the beneficiaries of a fundraising concert by the Soul Symphony Choir on 29th April at St Paul’s United Reform Church, South Croydon.
There was an evening of wonderful music and many people present spoke about the importance of good mental health and the importance of the support provided by Mind in Croydon.
The event raised £1,242.45 and choir leader Joanne came along to Mind in Croydon to deliver the cheque in person.
We are very grateful to the choir and all of the hard work they put into the evening. You can find out more about the choir at https://www.facebook.com/SoulSymphonyChoir.Croydon/
