New Year Greetings
Warmest greetings to all the people who use Hillingdon Mind services, and to our colleagues, supporters, and friends, and best wishes for 2017
"Pastiche" Donation to Hillingdon Mind
For 20 years Pastiche Musical Theatre have presented shows at the Compass Theatre in Ickenham, while raising large amounts of money for charities - to date, this has amounted to over £55,000!
In mid-September, Pastiche gave a performance of "Musical Melodies", and Hillingdon Mind is extremely grateful for their donation of £536.85 to support our work. Well done for both a great show, and a much valued and welcome contribution.
Their next performance, from 29th March to 01 April 2017 will be "Hello Dolly", so to purchase tickets for a great show, in support of another great cause, details are below.
Mind Leaders' Conference 2016
Just finished national Mind's Leaders' Conference 2016 at Milton Keynes. The best of the four annual events I've attended.
Excellent speakers, workshops and brief "spotlight" presentations on innovative developments from across England and Wales.
The Mind Network is evidently in very good shape, with a strong sense of cohesion and direction. The challenge now is to convert that into local action for the benefit of Hillingdon residents, and the London Region.
Thanks to the "Posse"
Many thanks to the "Posse" who raised £2315.00 for Hillingdon Mind at their bike exhibition and fund-raising event at the Gate, Northwood, in August. This is a valuable contribution to our work supporting people who have mental health issues.
