Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind is celebrating after receiving a £300 donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund.
The donation is already being utilised to help people learn new skills at our therapeutic garden project. Throughout all its work, SWR Mind aims to support people to set and reach individual goals, whether this is getting a job, making new friends or attending an evening course. Competition for funding and donations is particularly fierce at the moment so every penny we receive is gratefully received!
GALAXY Hot Chocolate is looking to help small, local community groups and charities across the UK and Ireland by donating cash awards to support warm hearted people and projects.
Michelle Frost, spokeswoman for GALAXY Hot Chocolate said yesterday: “We know that across the UK and Ireland smaller charities and groups struggle to make ends meet despite the efforts of a huge number of warm hearted volunteers. The GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund aims to give them a helping hand and hopefully inspire more people to get involved with local community groups.
