Got questions about Crafternoon? You've come to the right place! If you can't find the answer you need, please do drop us an email, and we'll be able to help.

Crafternoon is not happening in 2021. In 2021 we decided to retire Crafternoon, meaning that we won’t be launching and promoting Crafternoon as a fundraiser. The fundraising landscape has changed a lot over the past 18 months. As a team, we must stay focused on having the most significant impact on all of us that need Mind’s support.

If you would like to hold a Crafternoon for Mind in 2021, you can do so by registering a Do your Own Thing Fundraiser. You’ll be supported with fundraising ideas and advice from our Community Fundraising team.

Crafternoon has retired for lots of reasons. The world has changed lots in the 18 months, and the ways that people choose to fundraise has changed too. As a team, we must stay focused on having the most significant impact on all of us that need Mind’s support.
We do this by constantly evaluating our fundraising activity. After careful evaluation of Crafternoon, we found that it was time to retire it to make sure we use our resources to have the greatest impact.

Crafternoon has a beautiful legacy, including thousands of pounds raised for mental health and thousands of incredible events taking place. We don’t have any plans to bring it back in the future, but we hope those who have loved holding Crafternoons will continue to do so for many years.

Firstly, thank you so much for your incredible support. We hope you had a lovely time at your Crafternoon!
If you've paid in your fundraising or a fundraising page with Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving, you should receive a thank you email with an editable certification within eight weeks.

You can certainly hold a crafty fundraising event to raise money for your local Mind. We ask that you contact your local Mind directly for advice and fundraising materials.
You will also need to make sure that the event is advertised in aid of your local Mind. You do not use any fundraising materials with national Mind’s charity number on them. Otherwise, the money raised will legally have to come to national Mind.

We are communicating directly with the closed Crafternoon Facebook group at the moment. It’s a wonderful community that we have loved being part of over the past six years. However, to keep the group safe, we will need to close it down at the end of March, as we cannot moderate it indefinitely.
