Holding a fundraising event for Mind in Bradford can bring the community together as well as raising money and awareness.
Mother and daughter team Jenny and Becca Lyons smashed their fundraising target when they organised a charity cricket match in memory of husband and dad Gavin.
The event at Thackley Cricket Club was supported by lots of local people as well as The Idle Draper & Beerhouse, who ran a raffle, and ND Dance Academy, who fielded a team of cheerleaders. And we went along with a gazebo and lots of information about our services.
Many individuals and organisations supported the event by donating prizes for the raffle and giving generously. An amazing £1,010 was raised which has helped support people with emotional and mental health problems across the district.
If you would like to organise an event, we can help you come up with ideas and bring your community together too.
