Here's what it's about
In May we announced our official partnership with mental health charity Oxfordshire Mind
. Our aim is to raise £10,000 over the course of our two-year partnership to support the invaluable and often lifesaving work that the charity does.
To celebrate World Mental Health day, we're hosting a raffle to help raise funds towards this goal. Buy a raffle ticket for yourself, family, or friends, or simply make a small donation to support the hard work of the folks at Oxfordshire Mind.
Over 30 Fantastic Prizes to be won!
Whether you're an aspiring fitness buff, up for a round of junk yard golf, or a history aficionado, there's a prize for everyone. Here's a list of all the fantastic prizes that are up for grabs and which have been very kindly and generously donated from local businesses around Oxfordshire:
Even if you just need someone else to wash your car for a while, you can help us towards our goal by donating today. The Storm-Oxfordshire Mind raffle closes on October 10th 2019 at 12:00PM
