Simply Business has been supporting Mind since January 2021, and within the first six months of the charity partnership they raised £50,000 for Mind. Mind will be Simply Business' UK charity partner, with colleagues engaging in a range of exciting fundraising events and volunteering initiatives throughout the three-year partnership.
The fundraising kicked off with a very successful Auction of Promises in March 2021, which raised over £20,000. The event saw colleagues sell their skills and offer prizes as promises – everything from piano lessons, aromatherapy and yoga sessions to a stay in a house abroad and history tours around London.
More events including an endurance race, a sunflower growing competition and The Mind Walk are on the horizon. Alongside raising much needed funds, Simply Business is supporting the charity through their own time and skills, volunteering to help numerous projects across the Mind network. All of this will ensure Simply Business goes above and beyond their target to help anyone with a mental health problem access the support and respect they deserve.
