Loyalty scheme reaches fundraising milestone early

TN CARD members enjoying themselves at the loyalty scheme’s summer party reached a major fundraising milestone unexpectedly early, thanks to persistent and sustainable fundraising.

Since launching three years ago, the shopping and services scheme, which covers Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks, has donated £20,000 to its charity partner, West Kent Mind.

TN card founder Jess Gibson said: “This was a member event, not a fundraiser.

“I was planning a big fundraiser in September to get us to that mark – but we’re there already!”

The scheme donates 10 per cent of every membership to West Kent Mind, but charity funds have been drip-feeding in from raffles and prizes, non-members attending events and members booking training from the charity.

West Kent Mind is a cause close to Jess’s heart. “It’s so important – if it helps one person. I am open about my own struggles with mental health,” she told the Times.

West Kent Mind operates and fundraises independently from the national campaign Mind, and provides mental health resources locally.

The TN card’s formal fundraiser, the TN Style Edit, will be held on September 20.
