As you will know, Folkestone & District Mind were nominated as Sainsbury’s Park Farm’s Charity of the Year last year – and yesterday Roland and I attended a presentation event at which we received our total year’s funds (ceremoniously, of course) on behalf of the charity.

I am very pleased to tell you that that the grand total Mind is receiving is £3,903.59! This includes the sums we have already received, plus £2,379.80 which will be winging its way into our accounts shortly.

My huge thanks to all of those people who gave up their time to undertake collection activities – I know some of the Trustee Group (and staff group) have been very hands-on in this regard. This is very much appreciated and has literally paid dividends! I have also thanked (and would like again to thank) all the staff at Sainsbury’s who have worked hard to bolster the sums raised.
