Charlie Dallas Lancaster Foundation Launch
This week saw the launch of The Charlie Dallas Lancaster Foundation. Created in the memory of Charlie, a kind, caring devoted family man with a desire to help others.
Charlie had been a supporter of York Mind and been very active in both awareness and fundraising for York Mind, along with lots of other local charities. We are so pleased that his amazing community work will continue with the CDL foundation, set up by his family and friends.
Their launch event "A Mile a Life" starts on the 23rd of May with a month-long challenge to improve people’s connections through physical activity. Physical activity is an integral part of maintaining a healthy mindset day to day. They are inviting anyone who wishes to support this challenge to join them in completing 5,691 miles over one month. 23rd May – 23rd June 2021 and raise vital funds for both York Mind and SASH - Youth Homelessness Prevention.
Jo Stevens from SASH said "We are so grateful to the Charlie Dallas Lancaster Foundation for choosing SASH and York Mind as their nominated charities to receive the funds from this event. Charlie was an active supporter of SASH, taking part in our annual sleepout on a number of occasions. He will be fondly remembered for his enthusiasm and dedication to the charity, and is greatly missed"
