Mind’s message is simple, ‘for better mental health’ and right now it is even more important to support charities such this one with the UK’s lockdown taking its toll throughout the nation.
£10 could allow Mind to send essential information booklets about mental health to 40 people and if you donate (https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/originalrock) that sum of money OriginalRock.net will send you the whole pre-recorded evening for you to keep.
