Oxford Innovation Space Centres Collaborate to Raise Funds for Charity Mind
In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness Week 2023, the Oxfordshire cluster of Oxford Innovation Space centres joined forces to organise a highly successful “wellness” raffle. With the goal of raising funds for the renowned charity organisation Mind, the centres came together and donated some amazing prizes to create an engaging raffle. The collective effort and generosity of the communities involved, led to an outstanding fundraising total of £512 across seven Oxford Innovation Space centres.
The seven Oxford Innovation Space centres, including Witney Business and Innovation Centre, Culham Innovation Centre, Heyford Park Innovation Centre, Harwell Innovation Centre, Wood Centre For Innovation, Oxford Centre for Innovation, and Grassroots Workspace, recognised the importance of mental health and wellness. In an effort to promote awareness, they decided to collaborate and organise a fundraising event during Mental Health Awareness Week.
The wellness raffle gained significant traction within the Oxford Innovation Space communities. Members were enthusiastic about supporting the cause, as they recognised the importance of mental health and the valuable work carried out by Mind. The raffle provided an opportunity for individuals to contribute to the cause while also potentially winning fantastic prizes. The excitement and engagement surrounding the event were palpable, as participants eagerly purchased tickets, spreading the word and raising awareness through their networks.
Ultimately, the collective efforts of the Oxford Innovation Space centres resulted in a substantial fundraising total of £512 for Mind. This contribution will go a long way in supporting the charity’s mission to provide mental health support and resources to those in need. By coming together, the communities within the Oxfordshire cluster demonstrated the power of collaboration and the impact that small acts of kindness can have on society.
To all those who participated in the wellness raffle and generously donated to this worthy cause, we extend our deepest gratitude. Your contributions have made a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals facing mental health challenges. By supporting initiatives like this, we continue to foster a community that prioritises the well-being and support of its members.
