Bassetlaw Mind declare Monday 10 March ‘Happy Monday’
Mental health charity, Mind, launches national fundraising initiative because no one should have to face a mental health problem alone.
Bassetlaw Mind is calling on people in the area to sign up for Mind’s new fundraising event, Happy Monday.
Happy Monday takes place on Monday 10 March and is all about people having fun on the week’s least popular day – by hosting their own fundraising events and spending quality time with family, friends and colleagues.
Free fundraising packs are available from Bassetlaw Mind which encourages everyone to have a Happy Monday. Mind hopes the people of Bassetlaw will raise vital funds to ensure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support.
Stephen Fry, President of Mind, who has shared one of his favourite recipes said: “I’m hoping the kind people of Britain will roll up their sleeves on March 10th, for Mind’s inaugural Happy Monday. It’s a delightful excuse to spend time with friends and loved ones, or to tempt colleagues away from their desks, to raise vital funds for the 1 in 4 people who experience a mental health problem every year.
“I’ve been inspired to dust off my favourite Honey Buns recipe for Happy Monday and have every faith in the creativity of Mind supporters, to come up with their very own ways to brighten their Monday and raise money for this incredibly good cause.”
Nic Roberts of Bassetlaw Mind says: “We can all find Monday a struggle which is why we’re making Monday 10 March Happy Monday! We would like to encourage everyone in Worksop to get behind Happy Monday, have fun – and help Mind to support the 1 in 4 people who experience mental health problems every year.”
“Pop in to receive your free fundraising pack, and get thinking about your event, which can be as big as you want it to be and can be held at home, at work or at school.”
Karen Bolton, Mind’s Community & Events Fundraising Manager, said: “We are hoping to see lots of people from Bassetlaw join Mind supporters across the UK for Happy Monday. Every penny raised will make a huge difference and will help Mind ensure that no one has to face a mental health problem alone. Just £30 could help Mind promote green exercise and outdoor activities, helping people with anxiety and depression.”
