We're pleased to announce that we are raising valuable funds for Mind as our charity of the year for 2019.
The charity provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem and campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Muddy Souls events manager, Anne Duerden said: “Many of us have been touched by mental health issues in some way, so we’re delighted to raise funds for Mind whilst raising awareness of mental health challenges.
“Mind is a charity and relies on donations, so we’re planning a series of events throughout the year including the Brewery and Open Garden weekend and the Moonbeams Festival. We started the ball rolling by hosting a Rock and Roll Sing-along Bingo evening recently that raised over £100.”
Claire Thomas, Partnerships Development Manager from Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said: “It’s great to have Wold Top Brewery and Muddy Souls Events on board this year, supporting the work that we do. With one in four of us experiencing mental health problems in any one year, there are many people who need support and we rely on the local community to help us to be able to reach more people.
“I’m really excited about all the fundraising the team has got planned, and am grateful to everyone for getting involved in raising money to help Hull and East Yorkshire Mind to support local people’s mental health.”
For over 60 years, Mind has worked to improve the lives of all people with experience of mental health problems. 135 local branches of Mind have helped communities throughout England and Wales through public campaigns, government lobbying and by providing more than 1,000 services.
Since the brewery was founded in 2003 (and with the help of Muddy Souls Events since 2013), it has raised almost £50,000 for charitable causes including NGS nursing charities, Kidney Research UK, Macmillan, the Poppy Appeal and the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail. The combined businesses raised almost £4,000 for its 2018 Charity of the year, Macmillan Cancer Support.
