Community Fundraising

Leeds Mind has been providing mental health services for over 40 years. We are affiliated to Mind nationally but respond to local needs, this means the money raised through fundraising will stay in the local area and provide much needed services for people in Leeds with mental health difficulties.
Donations from our fantastic supporters really do make a difference and enable us to work towards better mental health for all.
How we can help….

Holding a fundraising event can be a great way to raise money and have fun in the process. Whatever you want to do; from holding a cake sale, putting on a concert, organising a raffle, doing a pub quiz or even a Zumba session you can turn it into a fundraising event or maybe your looking to take on a physical challenge like the Leeds 10k, Total Warrior or walking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks we can help you make the most of your efforts and Community Fundraising officer Gemma Green will be able to help you on your fundraising journey.
