With a target of raising £100,000, Mind has become the focus for charity fundraising at the employee-owned Childbase Partnership in 2019.
Following company-wide consultation and a vote in 43 day nurseries in the South of England, Mind gained the popular vote. Making the announcement at a meeting of Charity Representatives from each day nursery and company Head Office, Lucy Thompson, Head of Charity Fundraising at Childbase Partnership said:
"We are delighted to be supporting Mind. The breadth of activity undertaken by the charity in both supporting people living with a mental health problem, and advocating on their behalf, means we have the opportunity to make a real difference to so many lives."
"Our partnership with Mind will not just bring opportunities to raise funds, but also raise awareness around mental health issues."
