Rochdale and District Mind do not have the funds to recruit a fundraiser, so we rely heavily on the wonderful public to help us raise funds for general activities for our registered service users.
We would like to personally acknowledge the following people for the fundraising they have done for us recently, we always keep in touch with these people, even after their events have finished and monies have been banked, as we like to show them where their donation has gone to.
