Park Issa vets have been raising funds for MHRUK for over six years now in memory of one of their partners, Mark Robinson. If you’re short on fundraising ideas, take a look at what they’ve been up to now.


Park Issa vets first started supporting Mental Health Research UK in 2010 in memory of one of the partners Mr Mark Robinson B.V.Sc M.R.C.V.S, who sadly took his own life in 2009. 

Our fundraising journey started off with a 10 mile sponsored walk, progressing through the years to a 16 mile walk and in 2016 we completed a 26 mile walk raising £1930.00. We also continue to support Blooming Monday, with each year getting brighter and brighter.

Other fundrasing we have done, includes, raffles, donating money instead of sending xmas cards, and requesting donations instead of birthday presents. 

Christmas 2016 saw us getting involved with the local pantomime who kindly donated the evenings takings, which along with a raffle we organised raised £955.00. 

2017 started off with Blooming Monday and the theme bright wigs!! As I am typing this we are organising a cake
 sale on the 17th May for all our clients and staff, and as we all like eating cake I am sure we will do well. May 28th one of our nurses will be running the Edinburgh marathon, for which we all wish her the best of luck. 

Without the support of our lovely clients we would not have been able to have raised over £13,000 since we started, so a big thank you to them.
