Mind BLMK has successfully made it through to the final shortlist of five charities competing to become London Luton Airport's (LLA) Charity of the Year. Voting is now open and will continue until 4th December, 2017.

There were more than 50 applications from charities and so we are especially pleased with the success of our joint bid with Mind National to make it to the final five. Now LLA staff and the public get to make the final decision on who will be the LLA Charity of the Year. Given this, we are asking for your help to make sure that as many people have the opportunity to vote for us as possible.

If you are on social media, please can you make sure that you keep a special eye on Mind BLMK's Twitter and Facebook posts in the coming weeks, and share our posts about the vote: the more people we can reach, the better. Please tell your family and friends about the vote and ask them to vote for us on all their different devices.

If we are successful in the vote, we will use the funding to support young people in particular so that no young person has to face a mental health problem alone. As you may know, suicide is the leading cause of death for both men and women aged 20-34 in England and Wales. Every day hundreds of amazing young people are getting in touch to tell us their story. 


Let's act now, together, so no-one has to suffer alone.

Choose Mind and you'll help us to ensure that no young person has to struggle alone with their mental health problem, giving them access to help when they need it most.

Your vote will enable us to give life-changing and life-saving support, such as counselling, mentoring and support groups for young people to support for teachers and staff in local schools so they know how to help a young person in crisis.
