Facebook’s Birthday – 4th February

Rugby Six Nations – 6th February 2016
It is that time of year again where we all get behind our home nations at the start of the Six Nations Championship. It’s a great excuse for rugby fans to indulge in an office sweepstake and raise oodles of dosh for MHM Wales. Just give it a try!

Chinese New Year’s Eve 7th February
This Chinese New Year, is the Year of the Monkey, why not hang around with your workmates/friends for tasty Chinese dishes in return for donations? (Charge fines for anyone using forks instead of chopsticks.) Or you could bake some fortune cookies to sell at work and then donate the takings to MHM Wales.

Pancake Day – 9th February
Add a little ooh la la to Pancake Day and host a crêpe party at work. Make your pancakes French style with fruit or cheese, or even flambé style with liquor. Alternatively, you could have a pancake flipping competition to see who can throw their pancakes the highest.

Valentine’s Day – 14th February
Put some sparkles into Valentine’s Day why not hold a dress down day with a difference and wear something Red/Pink to work. Or you could even arrange tombola, giving out romantic prizes of chocolates and bottle of bubbles

Student Volunteering Week – 22 February
Are you are a student looking to gain experience in Mental Health why not volunteer for us or hold a fundraising event at your school, college or university and show case your   innovative ideas to inspire others .

We couldn’t provide all the support we do without you, so thank you. If you want to get involved, in whatever way you can, call us on 01656651450 or email us at fundraising@mhmwales.org

Did you know that £98 could fund our information and support group for a day?  This would mean more people affected by Mental Health would have someone to answer their questions and sign post them to organisations which could offer them much needed support.

See if you can raise this amount with our February fundraising ideas.

Thanks for reading, good luck!
