Charity of the year

Our charity of the year from April 2020 is Wiltshire Mind

Wiltshire Mind is a self-funded local charity which provides a range of services to support those suffering from mental health issues in Wiltshire. Among other things, services include peer support groups, 1-1 counselling and specific young people’s counselling, mental health awareness training for organisations and businesses and stress/anxiety and mindfulness sessions.

Partner, and Head of Private Client, Emma Taylor, said, “We are delighted to be supporting a local charity that provides such important work for our communities.

Goughs will organise a variety of fundraising activities over the coming 12 months to raise as much money as possible for the cause. In previous years, activities have included abseiling, mountain-climbing, car-boot sales, bake sales and more, so I’m really looking forward to what the team will be doing this year.”

Jim Donald of Wiltshire Mind commented, “We are only able to carry out the work we do through fundraising and legacies so we are extremely grateful to Goughs Solicitors for their support. It costs around £465 a day to keep the charity running and we are looking at expanding our services to support more people in need over the next year.”
