The Only Way Is Forward - A night of music fundraising for your local mental health charity, in partnership with musician Aid Lewis.

Maidstone and Mid-Kent Mind and Aid Lewis are delighted to be working in partnership to bring you an evening of awareness, love and hope.

Aid’s performance, on the 28th of November at PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone), will explore the themes of life’s experiences, as told in the new debut album ‘Empathy and Ecstasy’. The themes explored in this album will cover everything, including many relatable elements of mental health, so Maidstone and Mid-Kent Mind are delighted to be involved in what is sure to be a memorable evening.

Tickets for the night are just £11, with a percentage of the ticket sales going to Maidstone and Mid-Kent Mind. A representative from the organisation will also be available on the night, and additional resources around mental health will be available if you wish to take anything away with you. Donation buckets will also be in use at the venue, so please do bring your loose change with you, as any little can make a huge difference.

On behalf of both Maidstone and Mid-Kent Mind, and Aid Lewis, we are incredibly excited for this night of good music, and company. Sometimes coming together and thinking about mental health is all it takes to make a difference to someone’s life – so we hope that this night does just that.

MMK Mind would like to thank Aid Lewis sand Guests for donating an incredible eighty-seven pounds and seventy three pence to Maidstone and Mid-Kent Mind.

UPDATE: The event has now passed, and thanks to the generosity of both Aid and all of the attendees on the night, we were able to raise just under £100 – a fantastic amount which will really make a difference to the work we do in the local area.

We are excited to continue to fundraise with Aid throughout 2020 – raising awareness of Mental Health, and the services in place to support people who may be experiencing ill mental health.
