Local Radio Day 2017 #ProperLocalRadio

deal and donate header

We're raising money for Rethink on Local Radio Day.


Thanks to Dowsett's, we're doing Deal and Donate.  The idea is really simple - for every used car bought from Doswett's between Monday 22nd and Saturday 27th May, 1% of the takings will be donated to the charity!

Plus, Wessex FM will match the donation to double the money we donate!

Rethink Mental Illness is a national charity that supports millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes and changing lives. We support around 60,000 people every year to get through crises, live independently and realise they are not alone, through our services and support groups.

rethinkDorset Community Services provide both group and 1-1 sessions for local people. The service helps people to build confidence, access treatment and work towards individual goals such as employment, physical health, financial stability and wellbeing. We also offer a variety of activities including: yoga, photography, cooking, drumming, cinema and Sunday lunch club. We also operate the Oasis Kiosk in Dorchester Borough Gardens which provides work experience and training opportunities for local people.

Within Dorset, Rethink Mental Illness also run a Recovery House for those experiencing a mental health crisis as an alternative to hospital admission, and a Carers Service to advise and support those caring for someone with a mental illness. We also work in partnership with the NHS to deliver an Early Intervention Service for people aged 14-65 who are showing early signs of psychosis.

Michelle Dunnings, Services Manager at Rethink Mental Illness in Dorset, told James from the Wessex FM Breakfast Show that it was great to be the nominated Deal and Donate charity:
