January has been a fantastic month for local people getting involved and raising money and awareness for mental health – thank you to everyone involved!
An Evening of Mediumship – Maureen Bobby
On the 23rd of April 2017 a member of our Housing Team, Maureen Bobby, will be running the London Marathon in aid of Oxfordshire Mind. Last Saturday, Maureen organised an evening of medium-ship and a raffle, raising £491 towards her £2000 target. With 78 days left to train, Maureen is in high spirits and the support she is receiving is “just brilliant”. To sponsor Maureen, you can donate to her Virgin Giving page here. We can’t wait to cheer her on!
R.E.D. January – Matthew Treadwell
The last day of January saw our CEO, Dan Knowles, do 31 press-ups to finish off his R.E.D. January fitness challenge! Service user, Matthew Treadwell, also raised a total of £105 for the cause, by walking every single day. Thank you both for getting involved!
A Charity Scrim – Oxford Roller Derby
We would like to say a huge thank you to Oxford Roller Derby for raising over £2,000 for Oxfordshire Mind. After a fun-filled and action-packed day, both the beginners and advanced skaters came away with huge smiles. If you couldn’t make it on the day, you can still donate here.
An amazing result ladies – we couldn’t do the job we do without support like this!
