Dorset Mind is one of the better known, but underfunded, charities for supporting people locally with mental health problems. We rely mainly on funding from local councils and donations from the public collected at fundraising events.
But – did you know – apart from donating or volunteering for us, there are other ways to support us?
Ace Office Environments
The Sales Director for ACE Office Environments, Mr Keith Boulter, explains, “Here at ACE we recognise the significant problems regarding mental health in the community. Our local charity, Dorset Mind, is there to help – but it also needs help itself. Dorset Mind deserves support for the fantastic work it does.”
“Its not only financial support Dorset Mind needs, but importantly, practical help,” he added. “Which is where we can step in. For example, we recently provided all of the printed leaflets and posters that help inform our community about the support services Dorset Mind provides. As a result, that makes sure their funds stay at the front line – and goes wholly towards helping the people of Dorset.”
A different kind of help…
And we’re very grateful to ACE for the printed literature, the cost of which would otherwise dent our limited budget. The leaflets, professionally printed by ACE, advertise our support services and training, which are run throughout Dorset.
Rob Griffith, Dorset Mind’s Fundraising Manager comments “Support like this from local companies is invaluable. Although it goes largely unrecorded, or indeed unrecognised, generous acts like printing leaflets, or supplying computer equipment for example, can really make a difference.”
“Most of all, it allows us to channel funds to where they should go – towards help for our service users. And on their behalf, we’d like to say a big THANK YOU to ACE Office Environments.”
