SECE Mind would like to say a big thank you to Southend Airport!
Earlier this year, South East and Central Essex Mind was kindly awarded a portion of the money raised by Southend Airport during their Reindeer Runway Event. During the fundraiser, members of the public joined airport employees on the runway to help raise funds for local charities. After such a challenging 2020, we are so grateful to have received local support like this and would like to say a big thank you to all involved.
As part of our community services at SECE Mind, we provide supervised residential housing for adults with a mental health condition who are unable to cope with living independently. This comprises of eleven flats at a site called Nelson's Gate in Southend.
We are looking at creating a wellbeing garden for the residents to use, benefit from and tend to. COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of gardens and green space in helping nurture positive mental health and wellbeing - This donation help get this project started.
If you would like to get involved with this garden regeneration project, or any other fundraising please do feel free to get in touch and have a chat with Keeley, our Fundraising Officer via firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 01702 601123.
