FUNDING BOOST

A huge thank you goes to Scotmid members who awarded us £15,000 through the Scotmid Co-operative’s Community Connect initiative.

We received the top financial award by earning the most member votes in Scotmid's East Region.

'We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded £15,000 through Community Connect – I haven’t stopped smiling since the result was announced' said Lynne Stanford, Fundraising Manager at Health in Mind.

'As a local charity we rely on donations to allow us to continue to promote and support positive mental health and wellbeing in Edinburgh, the Lothians and the Scottish Borders.

'We will use the Community Connect funding to support the training of 100 volunteer befrienders, who will be matched with at least 100 people who have become lonely and isolated as a result of mental health difficulties.'
