The founder of a Meldreth mental health charity has said he is most grateful, after his cause received £2,000 in funding from Royston & District Round Table.
The donation was given after the round table members and the 41 Club hosted a talk by Steve Mallen, chair of The MindEd Trust, in Litlington – which was on the prevention of mental illness in young people.
Mr Mallen, who started the charity after the death of his son Edward in 2015, said: “We are most grateful for this support. The more we talk openly about mental health and the support available, the more we will prevent people reaching crisis. This will make for happier and healthier schools, families and communities.”
In recognition of the inspiring work undertaken by The MindEd Trust for young people in the area, the sum was presented to Mr Mallen by Mark Ely, Chairman of Royston & District Round Table.
Mr Ely said: “From all the local donations we are very kindly given, our aim is to support our local community.
The MindEd Trust is a local charity providing mental health support in our community. It is one of many local initiatives that we are pleased to be able to help.”
