A huge thank you to all of our supporters who have fundraised for us - here's a taster of what they've been up to recently!

Shoreditch 10k

Five runners completed the inaugural Shoreditch 10k in aid of Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest on October 8th. The event was a success, raising £670, and we look forward to it becoming an annual event in our fundraising calendar.

Raffle

On 2nd November, our supporter Lizzie raised a staggering £5215 after hiring out the famous MacBeth of Hoxton in Shoreditch for a huge fundraiser. The event included spoken word artists, DJs, and a raffle that was offering generously donated prizes such as theatre and Premier League football tickets, Track Days, Spotify and BT Sport subscriptions, wine, beauty products and more.

'Sophie' at the Camden Fringe

This original play, written by and starring Julia Pagett, ran from the 19th-27th August 2017 at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, as part of the Camden Fringe season. Julia said that ‘part of the reason I wanted to show this piece was explicitly to get people talking, to open up, connect and raise awareness’. Julia raised £187 through donations from audience members.
