MENTAL health charity Wiltshire Mind has enjoyed a successful relationship with the Trowbridge mayor after £5,354.05 was raised over the last year.

Cllr Deborah Halik served as Trowbridge Mayor from May 2017-2018 and chose the little charity to raise awareness of what it does and of mental health as well.

Wiltshire Mind founder, Carolyn Beale, said: “Thank you very much Trowbridge and most importantly to Deborah for choosing Wiltshire Mind as your charity of the year.

“We are a small local charity, totally unfunded, not supported by national Mind or statutory authorities.

“We have nine different support groups and three of those are in Trowbridge.

“It is difficult to compete with larger charities so when we are chosen like this by the mayor of Trowbridge is it is very special for us.

“So thank you to all.”
