Busy time at Co-op-backed Mind as it prepares for AGM and is boosting funds through lottery

THE annual general meeting of Thurrock and Brentwood Mind will take place next month in a virtual format.

It will take place on Wednesday, 9 December at 10am and will be hosted on the Zoom platform.

All are welcome but the Zoom link and AGM papers will be circulated to attendees once they have contacted the charity on 01375 391411 to register interest.

Meanwhile Thurrock and Brentwood Mind is fundraising having become a partner organisation of The Essex Lottery, a weekly drawthat raises money for good causes in Essex. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Essex and its residents.

Tickets for the lottery cost £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!

Each ticket will consist of six numbers and each number will be between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a six digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the JACKPOT!
