The business was given the opportunity to vote for the 2017/2018 charity partner and an overwhelming majority backed the charity.
MIND is a charity providing advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
Driving the fundraising support is a volunteer group of employees who have pulled together a series of events to raise money and awareness for MIND.
Speaking of the partnership, Ruth Foster, chief people officer shared:
“Often a taboo subject, in recent years public attitudes are improving, support is growing and mental well being is high on the political agenda. With members of the Royal Family supporting efforts to open up conversations about mental well being, more is being done to help people better understand challenges people face that often can’t be seen.
Too often, people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health and this can stop people from getting help. Through our fundraising efforts, MIND is able to continue offering advice and support to those facing a range of challenges.
We are looking forward to contributing to the efforts to promote a greater understanding of mental health in the workplace and the recruitment sector.”
