After the success of our 2020 partnership with Macmillan, we decided that yet again we would be partnering with another charity for 2021.
It was very important to us to ensure our team had a say in our chosen charity for this year so as per the results of our internal poll we will be partnering with Mind!
Mind is a fantastic charity; their mission is to ‘provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem’ through campaigning ‘to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.’
We have all been learning to live with the restrictions imposed by COVID but with said restrictions being in place for almost a year now and with many individuals with mental health conditions suffering because of it we couldn’t think of a more suitable charity to support in 2021. We hope to support Mind in their mission over the next year, our first step towards doing so is looking internally, we currently have a couple members of our team trained as mental health first aiders, but we will be increasing this over the course of the year. We are also reviewing our mental wellbeing policies to ensure we can provide the right support to our team.
Tough Mudder remains to be our chosen main event, after our plans to take part in this event fell through last year we were determined to come back stronger this year with a target to raise a total of £5,000 before the end of 2021.
We will also be running many more smaller charity events throughout the year. Follow our Linked In page to keep up to date with what we’re doing and how much we’ve raised.
