yay retro! help Skandia UK support Mind
Recently yay retro! received a message from Skandia in Southampton asking us to support the fund raising that one of their offices will be organising to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.
Many people are either related to, or know someone who has had to deal with mental health difficulties, and with one in four people personally suffering from mental illness in their lifetimes, this charity is special to both myself at yay retro! and the team who got in touch from Skandia. A charity such as Mind needs more recognition and help to support the vital work they do.
As the Skandia office will be hosting cake sales within the company, as well as many raffles, we thought that one of yay retro!'s vintage large flowery serving platters would be the ideal raffle prize to offer :O)
yay retro! wish Skandia lots of luck with their fund raising cake sales and raffles for Mind, which takes place next month :O)
If you are suffering right now, please don't do so in silence....Mind has a very helpful website http://www.mind.org.uk/ which enables you to get in touch and talk to someone (the link is just here.) Additionally their site is full of useful information for helping people through a crisis, as well as giving information for those caring for them.
