Technoprint have been busy fundraising for their three chosen charities for a while now, but we thought we’d explain a bit more about each of them for you and to help raise awareness of their amazingness.

Mid-Cheshire Mind

Mid-Cheshire Mind manages an informal drop in centre for people who have had or are currently suffering from mental health problems.


Mid-Cheshire Mind is a registered charity affiliated to National Mind. The original Winsford group was formed in 1984 and is now based in the centre of the town making it accessible to many local people.

Mid-Cheshire Mind can offer support to anyone over the age of 18 from the Mid Cheshire area who may suffer from a mental health problem.

They believe that given the right support every person has the capacity to make changes in their lives.  There are many ways in which talking can help, and they particularly value informal approaches such as self-help groups, and conversations with other service users and staff – all opening up fresh horizons and new potential paths forward.
