Funds raised will be donated to Burton & District MIND to establidh a new fund – ‘Helen’s Bursary’. This is in memory of our late chair Helen Klich. Below is the statement from Keri Lawrence explianing this fund.

“Burton and District Mind are your local mental health charity covering East Staffordshire, Tamworth and Lichfield District. Each year we support 4,000 people with the recovery of mental health problems; these might through counselling or one to one support, or through group activities, such as our peer support groups or sports activities. We will not give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the respect and support they need. 

Sometimes, one of our participants has a one-off need that no funder can fund, or partner charity can support – this might because it is out of scope or because the need is just so urgent. We have committed the donations from our friends at Kaleidoscope Choir to go towards a new bursary called ‘Helen’s Bursary’, which can be used by our Recovery Workers or Outreach Workers have identified these needs. Perhaps it’ll fund essential travel, or white goods, or anything else that can really accelerate that’s person’s mental health recovery. We hope that Helen Klich’s huge commitment to helping people with mental health problems can be remembered by this legacy.  Together, we’ll leave no mind behind.”
