Following this event, we’ll be asking the local community how they’d like the money we raise to be spent and whether there are any specific projects to support good mental health that we can help fund.“We are still in the process of organising this event and would like to invite local businesses to help us as community put on the best Halloween event we can. If your business can providing our group with sponsorship for the event to help cover the cost of decorating the venue, please get in touch.”Anyone who would like to support the community event should contact Lee on 07923574946
