Mind - For Better Mental Health

Donate or Fundraise

What we need money for

All activities and services provided outside our core services, such as those which make up the Wellbeing Programme, Counselling Service, etc. rely upon donations, grants, and the fundraising efforts of our local Charity shops, and Centre staff and volunteers. To sustain the current level of service requires us to raise in the region of 40,000 per annum. A donation of 3.00 will pay for our members to enjoy an individual music lesson or a donation of 7.50 would pay for a member to receive counselling.

Donate via JustTextGiving

You can donate to Folkestone Mind by texting MIND39 (followed by the amount you wish to donate) to 70070. You can donate 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10.

As an example to donate 5 you would text: MIND39 5 to 70070

All the money you donate goes to us. You may be charged for your text message. Please refer to your network operator's standard rates. If you have any questions about JustTextGiving, visit justtextgiving.co.uk
