Richmond Fellowship Cambridge services are radio station’s Charity of the Month

Richmond Fellowship’s services in Cambridge have been chosen as a local radio station’s Charity of the Month for October.

Cambridge 105 Radio selects a different charity operating in the city to support each month by offering a series of radio interviews and podcasts.

It means Richmond Fellowship’s Employment service based in Signet Court, Castle Supported Housing and Winston House Residential services will all have the opportunity to take part in a radio interview to talk about the work they do and receive on air promotion across the month.

The news comes ahead of World Mental Health Day, which takes place on Wednesday 10 October.

Carole Jones, Regional Manager at Richmond Fellowship said:

“We are so grateful to Cambridge 105 Radio for selecting our Cambridge services as their chosen charity for October. It gives us a fantastic opportunity to showcase the excellent recovery work that goes on in our services, supporting people with mental ill health. It’s also very timely with World Mental Health Day just around the corner.”
