Thinking of Christmas presents?

Derbyshire Mind is Lubrizol’s nominated charity – one of their employees Claire Hollighurst, also does direct sales for Weleda which is all about wellbeing, selling natural products. Claire has chosen to offer all her commission from her work on this, from now until the end of the year, to Derbyshire Mind so if you are others would like to view or buy and gifts you can do so

Weleda are also doing a 'kindness for Christmas' campaign and customers can make donations with their orders to the campaign. The money raised via this will be matched by Weleda and converted into products for us to use in the Living Advent donations.

MasquerMind Ball

Our congratulations and thanks go to Kelly Brammer and colleagues who hosted their first MasquerMind Ball on the 29th of September at Eastwood Hall. The proceeds of the event were divided between National and Derbyshire Mind and a grand total of £1,100!!!

Due to the success of the event Kelly is wanting to host this as an annual fundraiser and her project submission to the Aviva Community Fund to help achieve this has been successful. All that is needed now is for the event to be supported by as many people as possible

Please help Kelly to win funding for another event voting is open until 21st November and we need to get as many votes as possible to hopefully win some funding for the next MasquerMind Event.
