McCartneys say "thank you"

Last year, dressing as characters from the Wizard of Oz and a mass cycle ride were just two of the ways McCartneys staff raised money for mental health charity, Mind.

“Now with the total approaching nearly £6,000, it’s time to say a massive thank you to all the local businesses, individuals and farmers who helped us along the way,” said Partner Tom Carter.  

“Whether it was donating a lamb or ewe to be sold in aid of the charity at one of our livestock markets, donating in our property offices or signing one of our sponsorship forms, we know the money is going to be put to good use.

“We’ll be splitting it between Mind in Powys, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire where our offices are based.

We mustn’t forget that mental health is something we need to be mindful of on an ongoing basis. This is why we chose to raise money for Mind in 2017," he added.

If you or someone you know is struggling, then please talk to someone. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone close to you, then Mind has a really useful website, www.mind.org.uk or you can all them on 0300 123 3393.

McCartneys know how to make your heart beat a little faster, whether it’s securing your dream home, achieving the top estimate on your auction lot or walking the hills with one of our rural professionals. Without heart we are nothing, which is why we’ve chosen to put everyone’s heart at the centre of our fundraising efforts in 2018.

“We’ll be raising money to purchase defibrillators for our livestock markets and will also make a donation direct to the British Heart Foundation.

So, if you visit our website www.mccartneys.co.uk  this year you may see us doing one or two more crazy things in the name of charity.  They may be fun, but there’s a serious point for the rural community at large. 2018 really is the year to start looking after yourself, both physically and mentally.

You’re at the heart of everything we do, so let’s get fundraising.”
