Community Chest October Winner

Congratulations to Mind Wellingborough, who won the £100 Prize Fund from the Swansgate Community Chest in October.

Nigel Mansfield, Chief Executive at Wellingborough Mind, said "We are grateful for the public nomination in to the Community Chest and delighted that we have been chosen as this month’s winner. As a local Mental Health Charity many people are not aware of our work until they, or someone they know, need our support. We have been working in Wellingborough for nearly forty years providing services to the 1 in 4 people, who every year, experience mental health problems."

"The Community Chest Award will enable us to fund our 'Three Days of Wellbeing' creative activities that we run between Christmas and the New Year. The three days are open to anyone in the area to attend our workshops on Managing Mood, Building Confidence, or Stress Management." For more information on these workshops or the service that Wellingborough Mind offers please visit www.wellingboroughmind.org.uk.

Each month, one community cause, club or charity will be selected to receive £100 from Swansgate. So whether you're fundraising for a particular event or mission or would like some extra cash for your local club, make your nomination!

To nominate, fill out a card and post in the entry box by the Community Noticebox (in between Wilko & Home Bargains).You can nominate until the end of each month, where one nomination will be chosen to receive £100. The chosen cause will be announced on our website here and on our Facebook page at the beginning of the next month.
