Ampthill Building CompanyYou may remember that the lovely people at Ampthill Building Company were fundraising for Mind BLMK every Sunday throughout December with a Festive Fayre Meat Raffle at the Engine and Tender pub in Ampthill.

In their first week, they raised £210 but their aim was to raise much more by the end of the year. Today, they presented us with a cheque for an amazing £1,000!

As well as supporting us financially, they also wanted to raise awareness in the local community of the work we do to support and empower people to build their resilience and sustain their positive mental health and wellbeing. They know how importFestive Fayre Meat Raffle - Ampthillant it is as well to be talking about mental health if we are to reduce the stigma around it, and to make it as essential to everyone as their physical health.

So a huge thank you to Ampthill Building Company and the Engine and Tender pub, and the local community for raising this money for us. This donation will allow us to maintain and develop the service we offer in Central Bedfordshire which includes many support groups and activities.
