How to go the extra mile!
Due to the nature of what Mental Health UK does, there aren’t any volunteering opportunities available currently. However, there’s always the chance to organise a fundraiser, or to take part in events such as the London Marathon on behalf of Mental Health UK - helping them to raise vital donation in order to continue the good work. Other ways to help is by sharing the charity’s social media posts and signing up to the newsletter.
