The MP for Brentford and Isleworth, Ruth Cadbury, has officially opened a Mind Charity Shop in Chiswick this week and bought herself a new jacket while she was doing it.

The new branch is at 51 Turnham Green Terrace next to Postmark and Lizard. Previously, this long vacant unit has hosted businesses such as Samba Swirl, Borough Wines and Molly M.

Ms Cadbury posted on her Twitter feed, “V pleased to officially open the new @MindCharity shop on Turnham Green Terrace and delighted to find a jacket for work (with an amazing lining!)

“All income raised at the shop goes helps those needing mental health support, campaign for better mental health services & end stigma.”

Philip Morgan, Regional Manager at Mind, says, “We’re so excited to welcome the people of Turnham Green to this new Mind shop. Only with the community’s support will we be able to raise vital funds for Mind’s work such as the Infoline, information and advice services, and the campaigning Mind does to support the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem every year. There are very easy ways that everybody can get involved such as donating quality items, volunteering in the shop, or simply shopping at the store. I urge locals to visit the shop or get in touch to find out more about how they can support us.”

Mind also has a branch at 392a Chiswick High Road and the charity says visitors will be able to continue shopping at this location.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
