Why not start the new year by learning something new with Mind in Harrow?
Our Stepping Stones courses are for people living in Harrow who experience mental health issues. As well as learning different skills, taking a course can help you gain confidence and meet new people. You might even discover a hidden passion or talent!
Enrolment for our Spring 2017 courses will take place on Thursday 12th January, 11am-12.30pm, at Harrow Baptist Church on College Road. You will be able to sign up for the following courses, which will take place from mid-January:
10.30am to 12.30pm
Sketching and Painting
10.30am to 12.30pm
Mondays and Wednesdays
2pm to 3pm
There is a £15 charge for these 10 week courses, £5 of which will be returned to you when you attend the final discussion session. You can download the course brochure for more information.
You may or may not be aware that we have a charity shop in Central Harrow, just down the road from our office. It's open Monday to Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm and offers a wide range of items for you to buy. The money raised from sales benefit both national Mind and Mind in Harrow's work with people experiencing mental health issues – so you can do some good and feel great while picking up a few bargains!
Right now we are looking for volunteers to help out on the shop floor. We need people to help out every day, but in particular on Wednesdays, Saturday mornings, Thursday mornings and Sundays. You can read more about what the role involved and download the application form on our volunteering opportunities page – or just pop in during our opening hours for a chat! Volunteering offers a number of benefits, including free Mind membership, a 25% discount on donated goods and the opportunity to complete NVQs.
We are always looking for more donations in the shop and would be pleased to accept clothing, accessories, books, DVDs, CDs, homewear, linens and children's games and toys – they don't have to be brand new, but do have to be in good enough condition for us to sell on. You can drop off items during our opening hours. It is possible to park temporarily in front of the shop on College Road or at the rear via Havelock Place to make the drop-off.
The shop is located at 4 College Road, between Ellis and Co Estate Agents and Two Buns, and is a short walk from Harrow-on-the-Hill tube and bus stations. You can download this map of its location, which also shows the drop-off points you can use.
