Fundraising with South Lakeland Mind

As part of our Community Development and Engagement we attend numerous events annually within the South Lakes. These include, The Unity Festival, Integrated Community Care (ICC) biannual Family Fun Days, Torchlight (twice to date as Charity partners), The Westmorland County Show, The Coniston Country Fayre, Brewery Arts (to provide pre and post support for performances pertaining to mental health) and the Cartmel races – to name but a few.

Mind attend events throughout the community

Raising awareness and recruiting volunteers

Myself along with our dedicated team of Community Fundraising Volunteers attend events to raise awareness and continue to open up the conversation on mental health whilst recruiting new volunteers. Fundraising comes naturally from increased awareness and takes many forms, from independent fundraisers whom set themselves a personal challenge, supermarket collections, corporate fundraisers and local community fundraisers.

Mind attend events throughout the community

Fundraisers have included making and selling crafts, wine and cheese evenings, cake sales, golfing days, running the New York Marathon, a stationary Tour De France Bike ride, book sales, quiz and raffle evenings and live music. Our team attend each fundraiser with an information stand and are there to listen, signpost, provide information booklets, talk about the services provided at South Lakeland Mind and volunteering opportunities.

Wellbeing is an essential part of physcial and mental health

We also provide wellbeing sessions. Wellbeing is a fundamental part of our physical and mental health, it enables us to feel happiness, positivity and escapism in our ever-busy lives. South Lakeland Mind and See Events deliver wellbeing workshops for community groups and local charities, for local businesses and public sector organisations to enable participants to improve their wellbeing and better support others. Our wellbeing workshops are fun, interactive, innovative and positive. They are designed to improve personal well-being; providing individuals with tools and tips for self-care, self-management and personal growth. Workshops are individually designed for those participating and are based on the Five Ways to Wellbeing.

The second year of RED January was a big success

RED January is a National campaign we have been involved in for two years now. We support REDers in being active everyday throughout January to help themselves and others to improve their wellbeing through a notoriously difficult month; ostensibly through our social media channels where we have our own RED January community.

Building relationships within the community

We provide displays and pop-up stands during mental health awareness week; present power point presentations on a variety of related topics throughout the year (for example NCS students) and continue to develop positive community reciprocal connections. In essence, we attend a variety of events to raise awareness, network and develop partnerships which by natural course leads to effective fundraising, increased volunteer numbers and reduced stigma. Ultimately our goal is developing a relationship with our community who support our mission to enhance the quality of life for those experiencing mental illness; in recognising just like physical health we all have mental health – both need looking after.
