Thousands of pounds gifted to Ashton mental health charity

The Maximus Foundation UK has presented The Anthony Seddon Fund with a grant of £2,500 to continue providing mental health and well-being support in Tameside.

The charity offers peer support to people in crisis and aims to raise awareness locally of mental health and well-being.

The donation forms a part of the Foundation’s dedicated fundraising to help local charities nationwide affected by the Covid-19 crisis. The grant was awarded via a virtual cheque presentation by a Maximus Foundation trustee.

Maximus Foundation UK is a not-for-profit enterprise committed to supporting charities that have been nominated by Maximus UK employees.

These charities are committed to helping disadvantaged people and make a real difference to people’s lives through health, employment or community development. In 2020, Maximus Foundation UK awarded grant beneficiaries totalling £95,000.

Di Briggs, Chair, Maximus Foundation UK, said: “Many small charities across the UK face the challenge of resuming their normal activities after a very difficult period. 

“So we’re delighted to help The Anthony Seddon Fund to continue their amazing work providing mental health support in their community”.

Angie Wild, Head of Fundraising, The Anthony Seddon Fund, said: “The Anthony Seddon Fund is absolutely delighted to have received this award from Maximus Foundation UK. 

“The donation will be used to reward the charity’s Friends and Family Carers Group with vouchers, in recognition of their work supporting loved ones living with mental illnesses during a difficult period.”
