This week, we received a cheque for a staggering £10,000 from the Yellow Car Charitable Fund which is managed by the Essex Community Foundation. We are absolutely thrilled with this generosity.
Earlier in the year, we submitted a request for funds towards running our Jubilee drop-in centre for people with mental health issues. Essex Community Foundation carefully reviewed our application and matched us with the funder.
This donation has really meant a great deal to us. Last year our deficit was looking concerning and we were worried about the organisations future. After lots of hard work by the Senior Management Team here at SECE Mind, we are now in a much healthy financial and sustainable place. The acceptance of this application shows us that that funders now believe in our future direction and financial choices we have made. We feel like we have jumped over a hurdle and we are truly grateful to the Essex Community Foundation to sticking with us and showing us support all the way.
We are thrilled to work with the Yellow Car Charitable Fund and we looking forward to our journey with them. Thank you!
