Mind in Harrow's 2016 AGM

We are pleased to invite you to the Mind in Harrow Annual General Meeting 2016!

Our AGM theme this year is Young people, families and mental health. Our guest speaker will be the award-winning mental health campaigner, film producer, public speaker, writer and vlogger Jonny Benjamin. You may have watched his Channel 4 documentary "The Stranger on the Bridge", in which he searches for the stranger who talked him out of taking his own life in 2008. We will also be electing our newest trustees – if you would like to apply for this position, find out more here. The AGM will be followed by music and refreshments!

The AGM will take place on Thursday, 8th December 2016 from 3.00pm-7.00pm at Harrow Civic Centre, Members Lounge, Station Road, Harrow, HA1 2XY.

If you would like to attend the AGM, RSVP by Thursday 1st December 2016 with Tracey on 020 8515 7851 (voicemail) or email t.roberts@mindinharrow.org.uk. You can also download the flyer for the AGM here.

Focus on... the Mind shop in Harrow

You may or may not be aware that we have a charity shop in Central Harrow, just down the road from our office. It's open Monday to Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm and offers a wide range of items for you to buy. The money raised from sales benefit both national Mind and Mind in Harrow's work with people experiencing mental health issues – so you can do some good and feel great while picking up a few bargains!

Right now we are looking for volunteers to help out on the shop floor. We need people to help out every day, but in particular on Wednesdays, Saturday mornings, Thursday mornings and Sundays. You can read more about what the role involved and download the application form on our volunteering opportunities page – or just pop in during our opening hours for a chat! Volunteering offers a number of benefits, including free Mind membership, a 25% discount on donated goods and the opportunity to complete NVQs.

We are always looking for more donations in the shop and would be pleased to accept clothing, accessories, books, DVDs, CDs, homewear, linens and children's games and toys – they don't have to be brand new, but do have to be in good enough condition for us to sell on. You can drop off items during our opening hours. It is possible to park temporarily in front of the shop on College Road or at the rear via Havelock Place to make the drop-off.

The shop is located at 4 College Road, between Ellis and Co Estate Agents and Two Buns, and is a short walk from Harrow-on-the-Hill tube and bus stations. You can download this map of its location, which also shows the drop-off points you can use.
