LOCAL loyalty card TN Card is to celebrate its third birthday by raising funds for wellbeing and mental health services in West Kent, through prizes donated by the scheme’s retailers.
Starting from February 1 and running until 4pm on Sunday February 12, donors making a contribution to West Kent Mind (WKM) through the fundraiser will be entered into a prize draw.
TN Card founder Jess Gibson said: “Every person who donates will be entered into a draw to win a prize as a thank you for their kindness.
“Last year the fundraiser raised £3,000 including Gift Aid, and I’d like to beat that,” she told the Times.
Prizes range from treatments and baby toys to luxury food and drink.
Stevie Rice, CEO of the independent local charity, said: “Our partnership with the TN Card is extremely important to us and to date the TN Card has raised £15,000, which is an extraordinary achievement.
“The donations from the TN Card have supported our affordable counselling programme, enabling people from all across West Kent to access low-cost counselling so that money is no barrier to getting the right support,” she added.
“In the last year, demand for our services has increased, but resources for our work have become scarcer and the funding environment has become even more challenging and competitive.
“Like most charities, the cost-ofliving crisis has had a real impact on West Kent Mind, and these are very difficult times financially for everyone.”
Entrants do not need to be a TN Card member, but must live in a TN postcode. There is no minimum donation to enter.
The fundraiser takes place on February 1-12 at JustGiving
