The Mayor's Charities
The Mayor has chosen three charities to support for the year.
Havering Mind is a local mental health charity based in Havering. They provide services to people living in Havering, and the surrounding area who may be experiencing problems with their mental wellbeing. They also campaign for better services, deliver training and raise awareness of mental health.
Rainbow Trust care for families who have children with life threatening or terminal illnesses.
Lennox Children's Cancer Fund
Since the charity started in 1992, their main aim has been to make a positive difference to the lives of children diagnosed with cancer. This is done by offering practical, financial and emotional support to the whole family through our range of projects.
The caring teams at their offices always give 100% to ensure that the families they help have the support they need to get through the problems and stresses that cancer brings. They aim to make a big difference to as many children as possible with the minimum of fuss and without the need for 'red tape'. Any request for assistance will be considered in an open, friendly, understanding and sensitive manner.
They pride themselves on the assistance they are able to offer to families when they need it most.
