About Sheffield MIND
Sheffield MIND is a local charity that provides counselling, therapy services, practical and emotional support, as well as community connections and peer support to those suffering from poor mental health. Built on the principles of support and respect, MIND aims to de-stigmatise mental health conditions and seek parity of care for people with mental and physical illness.
MedSoc's Isolation Charity Challenge
This challenge has been created to show that it’s possible to try new things while in quarantine and that by doing them- you can help others too!
We want YOU to share with us how you’ve been staying busy and active during isolation. It can be something big or small- from running a marathon to making it through one page of a book you just cannot finish.
Maybe you’ll get inspired by our committee and try something new? We’ll be posting videos the over the course of the next month doing activities which have kept us entertained and sane over the lockdown.
- Post a video showing us how you’re keeping entertained and tag us in your Instagram story, Facebook post, or Instagram post.
- Then, go to our justgiving page and donate £5 to the Children’s Hospital Charity!
- If filming isn’t your thing, there is still a way to get involved! Go to our fundraising page and in the donation title share your way to combat the isolation routine.
All the money raised will go to a great cause – the Sheffield Children’s Hospital. In these hard times you can help some of the most vulnerable members of society by doing something kind to Yourself.
So join us! We’ll be looking forward to your videos and donations till 31st of May.
MedSoc has supported local charities through organising events such as:
