A Slice of SANE
Added: 6th Sep 2017

SANE fundraiser Janet held a Tea and Cake fundraiser in her home and raised over £1500!

The event was held on 30th August and, despite the rainy weather, over 70 people attended.   

Janet’s extended family; work colleagues; neighbours; church community and sports friends all came together in aid of SANE.

 ‘The ages ranged from 7 up to 97 - I guess no one can resist cake!’

With the grand selection of homemade cakes, mixed with an entertaining raffle and our charity information, it created the perfect recipe to talk about mental health, openly and safely.

 ‘It was interesting the stories people wanted to share about how mental illness had touched their lives through family and friends, if not directly.’

Janet has supported SANE for 30 years, and her great efforts here are what made the event so successful. We thank all those who took part on the day and wish you had saved us some cake!

We are lucky to have such dedicated fundraisers and Janet most definitely helped make a difference – one slice at a time. 

If you have been inspired by Janet's story and would like to fundraise for better mental health, we'd love to hear from you! From fun run to marathon, quiz to karaoke, there's an idea to suit everyone. Email fundraising@sane.org.uk or call 0203 805 1790.
