We’re delight­ed to announce Cro­ma’s new Char­i­ty part­ner­ship for 2017 with ‘Man­ches­ter Mind’. Cro­ma will be donat­ing 50p to Man­ches­ter Mind dur­ing 2017 from every ‘Spe­cial’ Piz­za or main dish sold .

Man­ches­ter Mind is an inde­pen­dent local char­i­ty which deliv­ers free sup­port to around 4000 young peo­ple (15–25 years old) and adults every year.
Their vision is that of a city which pro­motes good men­tal health and treats peo­ple with men­tal health issues pos­i­tive­ly, fair­ly and with respect.

Man­ches­ter Mind is com­mit­ted to improv­ing the lives of local peo­ple and chal­leng­ing the stereo­types and dis­crim­i­na­tion that sur­rounds men­tal health.Michael Bak­er

The char­i­ty empow­ers peo­ple live more suc­cess­ful­ly in their com­mu­ni­ties and with no core fund­ing from (nation­al) Mind or the Gov­ern­ment, they rely on grants and local dona­tions to con­tin­ue their vital work, sup­port­ing some of the city’s most vul­ner­a­ble residents.
