Char­ity gets cash boost from store

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

A CHAR­ITY help­ing peo­ple with mental health is­sues to live full lives has been given a big boost by gen­er­ous cus­tomers of Anglia Co-op­er­a­tive.

Peter­bor­ough and Fen­land Mind has re­ceived a £6,000 do­na­tion from the Anglia Co-op­er­a­tive Com­mu­nity Fund.

A cheque was pre­sented to the char­ity’s ser­vice devel­op­ment of­fi­cer, Emily Gray, by Jean Humphreys, a mem­ber of Anglia Co-op­er­a­tive’s board of di­rec­tors, at the city’s West­gate depart­ment store. The money was raised by cus­tomers who di­verted their mem­ber­ship re­ward points into the com­mu­nity fund.

Emily Gray said: “The do­na­tion will re­ally make a huge dif­fer­ence to us. It will be used in so many dif­fer­ent ways, in­clud­ing de­vel­op­ing train­ing cour­ses in ba­sic mental health aware­ness and stress in the work­place to take out to or­gan­i­sa­tions and busi­nesses in the area, and to set up a men’s group in Peter­bor­ough.”
