Marks & Spencer charity partnership with Dudley Mind

Last week, Marks & Spencer at Intu Merry Hill Dudley picked Dudley Mind as their chosen charity of the year. As official charity partners, M&S staff will be taking part in various fundraising activities, helping to raise funds and awareness of mental health over the next year.

We will also be taking part in regular bag packing events in store at M&S, packing customers shopping for them whilst fundraising and giving out information and advice about mental health.

£851.40p raised so far!! 

Our first bag pack of the year took place last weekend, raising an amazing £851.40 (£392.70p raised on sat and £458.70p raised on Sun)!! We would like to give a massive thank you to all of the customers who donated money during the bag packing. With a special thanks to a very special young boy (sorry we didn't get your name) who donated all of the money he had in his bum bag to us. If anyone knows who the young lad is, please get in touch as we would like to say thank you to him in person or over the phone.

Would you like to help us during bag packing events at Marks & Spencer Merry Hill? We are looking for volunteers who can help out during these events and help us raise fund and awareness.
