A Rushden mental health charity has been presented with cheques which will benefit it to the tune of nearly £15,000.
Mind have moved into a new headquarters after their last home burnt down in October 2008.
And the money – £10,000 in lottery funding, as well as £3,328 from 2012-13 town mayor Marian Hollomon and a further £1,387 raised by her husband Arthur, who abseiled down the lift tower in Northampton – has helped the charity kit out a new home, at Phoenix House.
The funds have paid for a lift at the centre, which has ensured the facility is accessible to all users.
One of the charity’s trustees, Jim Vokes, said: “We’ve been working on this project for three years now since we lost our old building to a fire.
“It’s been three years of very hard work, hard labour, lots of support and contributions from a lot of volunteers.”
