Fundraise

In order to survive, Wiltshire Mind needs to raise funds. We do not receive any statutory funding or funding from National Mind.

Can you help?

Could you raise funds for Wiltshire Mind through a sponsored run, walk or challenge?

Recent activities have included supporters taking part in a Skydive and Golf Tournament.

Only the brave took part in the Skydive!

If you are looking for a different way of raising money for Wiltshire Mind, why not set up a charity challenge?
You can do anything – a sponsored walk or bike ride, running a marathon, a parachute jump, Three Peaks Challenge etc. The choice is yours! All you need to do is choose the activity, get in touch with us to talk through the target and start raising money.
Charity challenges have become very popular in recent years. Not only do they allow you to achieve the unthinkable, but also do it in style and raise money for a great cause.

If you would like to set up your own Charity Challenge page in support of Wiltshire Mind, then please follow this link:
