Co-op Funeralcare Homes make donation to Mind

Date published: 17 January 2020

Rochdale and District Mind were presented with a cheque for £343.55 from the Co-op Funeralcare Homes (Rochdale) on 13 January 2020.

The donation was raised from the families who attended a Lights for A Life Memorial service before Christmas.

Paula Hall, Fundraising Co-ordinator from Rochdale and District Mind said “Mind started partnership working with the Co-op back in November 2019, and as the birth place of the Co-op it seems only fit that we build our partnerships up locally.

"Through the partnership we have now begun conversations with local Co-op Member Pioneers [Member Pioneers are local residents who work together with Co-op colleagues and local causes to make a difference in their communities] throughout Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale. This has brought some great ideas of the way forward for the next year to the front, and we are keen to keep this going after 2020.

"This donation will help fund some of our wellbeing activities for people affected with mental health issues around the Borough. On behalf of our charity, we’d like to thank everyone who donated to the Lights for a Life Memorial Service.”
