A generous donation exceeding £1,500 has been made to Stockport & District Mind by Russell Fox Court after two successful fundraising events.
Tenants at Russell Fox Court in Reddish chose to raise funds for the Stockport & District branch of Mind; a charity that supports those living with mental health problems.
The fundraising was accomplished through an annual charity event at the end of October followed by a raffle at the housing scheme's Christmas party.
Local businesses supported the events by generously donating raffle prizes which allowed tickets to be sold before the big day.
During the daytime, the communal lounge was transformed into an open area with members of the local community gathering and visiting the range of stalls on offer from tombola to delicious treats. This was followed by a sold out Halloween fancy dress ball with entertainment, hot pot supper and bingo in the evening.
On Monday 4th December, Stockport & District Mind were invited down to Russell Fox Court for the cheque presentation of £1,538.
