On 27 June HEH Mind teamed up with South Downs College staff as part of # South Downs College Giving Something Back Day 2017. Based at the M&S Havant Store volunteers had around 400 conversations with shoppers about mental health to raise awareness and help remove stigma.... collection buckets were jingling and full of generous donations.
The engagement levels with the public and support was humbling. We raised over £121 in donations on the day. A big thank you to all the volunteers from South Downs College as well as all at M&S Havant store for hosting the event.
The event is good demonstration of how we are all working together - HEH Mind and South Downs are working in partnership on a wider project to promote good mental health and wellbeing for all at South Downs college. While M&S Havant have made HEH Mind their charity of the year. Bringing these 3 organisations together on the day has helped to reach new parts of the community and brought new resources together to do it well.
