Southampton Catenians support Mayfield Nurseries
Southampton Catenians presented a cheque to Mayfield Nurseries for £1,010.
Mayfield Nurseries is a garden centre in Mayfield Park in Southampton, and they aim to bring about positive change for people struggling with their mental health. Every penny they make from plant sales is ploughed back into helping people with mental health issues. Mayfield Nurseries is a social enterprise and a subsiduary of Solent Mind.
Mayor of Southampton (Alex Houghton )
Southampton Catenians raised the funds during the COVID-19 year 2020-2021 when it ws not possible to hold any meetings, with most of the money coming from a Christmas Raffle.
Members also donated money directly during the year taking advantage of Gift Aid, raising an additional $1,460.
The money raised helped fund the renovation of the Café.
The Café was officially opened on 30th November 2021 by the 799th Mayor of Southampton (Alex Houghton ) with the Sheriff of Southampton (Jackie Rayment).
