Aston Well Dressers supporting Derbyshire Mind for 2017

 

Derbyshire Mind is pleased to announce that we have been chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the Aston Well Dressers charity fundraising for 2017. The Aston Well Dressers are a group of people from  the village of Aston on Trent in South Derbyshire who enjoy keeping alive the Derbyshire tradition of well dressing and in doing so raise money for local groups and charities.

 

The main well dressing festival in the village takes place the first weekend in July but they are hosting an afternoon tea event at Aston on Trent memorial hall on March 19th 2017. There will be stalls along with sales of cake, teas, coffees and prosecco. We wish them all the best for their events and please do support them if you can. You can find out more by visiting their website www.astonwellsdressers.co.uk or following them on Facebook.

Wendy Beer – Chief Executive of Derbyshire Mind says “Derbyshire Mind has a proven track record in the delivery of excellent specialist advocacy services. I am proud that we have the opportunity to build on this work by providing the new Community Advocacy Service, ensuring Derbyshire residents receive the very best in advocacy support”

Derbyshire Mind is announced as Lubrizol’s lead charity for the next 2 years.

 

In 2017 Derbyshire Mind will be celebrating 50 years of service to our community and we are delighted to announce at the start of this special year, that we have been chosen as the lead charity by Lubrizol based in Hazelwood in Derbyshire.

We are looking forward to being part of the company’s fundraising activities over the next 2 years and hope everyone involved enjoys a successful and enjoyable time”
