13 Oct Funding Secured for North Dorset Mental Health Charity
Matthew Billingsley, a Solicitor in our Private Client Team, volunteers as the Treasurer for the charity Mindful, which is a charity dedicated to the preservation of mental health in people aged over 65 and anyone with memory issues in North Dorset. They run various café events in Gillingham and Stalbridge and also regularly run different types of events for those people using their service.
Matthew successfully secured a grant of £500 from the Hall & Woodhouse Community Chest. Mindful plan to use the money to support the travel costs for people to continue or to begin visiting Mindful events. He attended the awards evening with another Trustee, Brian Ramsbottom, to receive the cheque from Hall & Woodhouse Community Chest.
Matthew is very passionate about the work undertaken by Mindful, and stated:
“Our resources are finite and without support we may not continue to be able to provide transport support, making our objective more difficult to achieve in the future. Mindful is very appreciative and humbled by both the support demonstrated towards them by Hall & Woodhouse, and also the tremendous amount of charity work that Hall & Woodhouse support from both inception to delivery.”
