Local estate agents McCartneys have helped raise nearly £7,000 for mental health charity Mind through their Welshpool and Newtown branches.  

Having initially raised £5517.00 as depicted in the photo, the partners of the business decided to round up that figure up to £6000; meaning the four local Mind’s where McCartneys’ are located; Mid Powys, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire will each receive a cheque for £1,500.

And there’s more good news on the fundraising front. The company also set up a Just Giving page in aid of the charity and this raised a further £834 which will go direct to Mind at a national level.

Claire Heeley from Mid Powys Mind said: “We can’t thank McCartneys and everyone who helped them along the way enough.  At a local level, we will be using the money to further our outreach programme, demand for which has grown considerably over the last 12 months.  Without donations like this we simply couldn’t run these drop-in sessions.”

With 16 branches across four counties McCartneys staff have taken part in all manner of challenges and fun activities from a fancy-dress day to a 30-mile cycle ride.  Customers and clients have joined in to from donations at property branches to special livestock auctions.

Tom Cater, partner with McCartneys said: “Mind is a charity that the whole company really wanted to get behind.  We’ve had tremendous support from local businesses and our customers who have helped us achieve this figure. 

“We know when it comes to mental health, living in a rural county like ours can bring its challenges, so we’re delighted that the charity will be using the money for their outreach programme.
