MIND is a charity dedicated to supporting anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They offer sound information, advice and support to individuals, and also campaign tirelessly to raise public awareness and promote understanding of issues relating to mental health. To read more about the fantastic work they do, read on here.

“We’re here to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.” MIND

We’d wanted to help them.

Up and down the country, fabulous folk have been making small craft items which we will sell through our Facebook Event page. Come and join us!

You can see photos of all the lovely things that will be on sale in our pre sale viewing albums here……

Easter Craft Sale for MIND - Fourth Pre Sale viewing album. We are still adding lovelies to this.

Prices are being added today, apologies for this only just happening now, it has been very busy busy for us.

Our Sale takes place over two days, starting on TUESDAY 8TH APRIL at 11am, and finishing on WEDNESDAY 9th at 9pm

From 11am tomorrow we are going to post batches of items on the wall, starting with the first 20 from Album One and work our way through. To buy an item, you will need to be the first to post your name next to the photo. We will then clearly be able to see who has bought, will thank you and ask you to PM us with the item number and a postal address. We can then arrange for payment with you. Ideally through PayPal, but cash or cheque payable to Woolly Hugs is fine too.

Do bear with us, we will acknowledge your purchase and reply to your PM asap!

Our Paypal is thanks

When paying for a purchase, please include a note with your name and the item number.

Craft items will be sent via second class post on Thursday and Friday this week, or if paying with a cheque, once funds have cleared. We will pay all money raised into the MIND account within two weeks and will publish our receipt here and on our Event page.

thanks Huge thanks once again. Together we can make this a great success for MIND
