I’m Cllr John Raine and I’m Chairman of Malvern Hills District Council. My role is to represent the district at events, meetings and ceremonies as well as support the work of my chosen charities:

  • Friends of Link Nurseries, Powick - occupational therapy through horticulture for adults recovering from mental health difficulties.
  • Positive Thoughts, Malvern - promoting mental wellness, helping those who have experienced mental distress or illness. 
  • Jigsaw, Malvern - relative and carer support group providing a place where people can give and receive emotional and practical support.
Research indicates that one in four people experience mental health issues at some stage in their lives. This event is to raise funds for local mental health charities that provide vital services and support for those in need. It is a cause very close to my heart as three personal friends have all suffered from acute mental health problems.
