Each year, our Board of Shareholders nominate a charity for our team to support.
We are delighted to have raised over £14,000 for Framework in 2016, and are proud to be supporting Rethink Mental Illness in 2017, with a series of fundraising activities planned throughout the year.
Rethink Mental Illness believes a better life is possible for people affected by mental illness and their carers and families. Since 1972 they have brought people together to support each other. They provide over 200 services and 130 volunteer support groups that change lives and challenge attitudes about mental illness.
Every year Rethink Mental Illness help around 60,000 people overcome mental health challenges, live independently and realise they are not alone.
Jonny Benjamin shared his story after trying to take his own life:
If I’d known much earlier that I could have found free information and advice on the Rethink Mental Illness website, or spoken to someone on the phone, I don’t think I would have found myself on the edge of a bridge about to take my life.– Jonny Benjamin
The first of our fundraising events will be a charity Golf Day in June, followed by a sponsored Water Wipeout challenge in July. Later in the year, we will hold our annual quiz night in October.
