Your RAG charities for this year

Thank you for voting for your RAG charities for this year, we've had over 900 votes for your RAG charities for 2022-23.

Your RAG charities for this year are:

Buckinghamshire mind - Buckinghamshire Mind is run by local people for local people and is responsible for its own funding and the services it provides. Like all local Minds, Buckinghamshire Mind receives no funding from national Mind. Therefore, they rely on donations and community fundraising, which underpin all the vital mental health services. This support makes an incredible difference, ensuring we can be here to support our community’s mental health needs now and in the future.

Hearing dogs for deaf people - We train dogs to alert deaf people to important and lifesaving sounds they would otherwise miss – such as the smoke alarm, alarm clock and even a baby crying. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives and can even save them.
