Together in Mind was presented with a sum of £750, raised at The Slinfold Craft and Gift Fair, by organisers Anne Allen and Pam Taylor on Monday November 26 at the Park Barn in Horsham park, where the support group meets every Monday morning.
Waitrose Horsham also recently handed over a sum of £483 which was raised through the green coin collection.
Thomas France, chairman of Together in Mind, said: “We are all delighted with the generous donations from both the craft and gift fair and that of Waitrose Community Matters (green coin collection).
“We will be using the money carefully to continue the group’s work among our community and by helping to fund social support outings in the coming new year.
“We would like to express our deepest thanks to all Horsham residents who helped make these donations possible.
“We at Together in Mind feel that starting new friendships helps people to find a place in our community and find a wealth of experience to complement our lives.
“It is our hope with the group that we can all learn in the possibilities we have together.”
The support group runs group outings, activities, day trips, and have a regular coffee morning on a Thursday. It is made up of volunteers who work together to organise and facilitate their services.
