Monday 10 March sees Mind launch their very first ‘Happy Monday’ – an annual fundraising event that hopes to see people starting the week with a smile by getting together with friends and colleagues to share an activity they enjoy.

We at Solent Mind love this initiative and as such we will be supporting Mind in their quest to reclaim Mondays in the name of happiness. Here are a few suggestions of how you can raise a smile whilst raising funds for Solent Mind on Happy Monday…

 

• Let them eat cake…

Whether you are a master baker or you just like cake, hold a cake sale for your family, friends or colleagues. Put the icing on the cake by donating the proceeds to Solent Mind!

• Partake in some freaky dancing…

Invite your friends over, put on some music and let the groove move you! You don’t have to be Ashley Banjo, just throw your arms in the air and wave them like you just don’t care!

• Turn the lights down and grab the popcorn…

Transform your lounge into a cinema and put on a private screening of your favourite movie for all of your friends and family. Dirty Dancing or Dirty Harry? The choice is yours.

• Play the game…

Whether you enjoy the technological delights of a Playstation or Xbox, or prefer the "old school" fun offered by the humble board game, holding a games day is a great way to get together with friends and have a little bit of competitive fun. Hungry Hippos or Super Mario Brothers, you decide!

Whether you aspire to be the next bake off champion, or you're a bona fide dancing queen or king, we’re here to help make your Happy Monday as easy and as fun as possible. Just decide what you’d like to do and let us know so that we can send you a support pack, complete with fundraising advice, donation payment forms, and a t-shirt. We'll be here to answer all of your questions and help make your Happy Monday event a huge success.

All of the money you raise on Happy Monday will go a long way in enabling us to continue to support anyone experiencing a mental health problem. That's worth a smile in itself, so why not start your week with a smile and join us for a Happy Monday on 10 March.
