This year, our charity partner is Mind, the UK’s leading mental health charity, providing advice and support to those experiencing a mental health problem. Statistically, one in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year, so Mind offers a vital service.
Emma Ihsan, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Mind, said: “We are delighted that Moore Kingston Smith have continued their partnership with us. The money they raise will help to fund our vital services including Mind’s Infoline and the campaigning we do to ensure that the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem every year receives the support and respect we deserve.”
Our activities to raise money for Mind include running, walking, mountain trekking, cycling, skydiving and abseiling. Those preferring to keep their feet on the ground continue to join with bake sales, dress-down days, spring cleaning, sweep stakes and volunteering opportunities.
Mind Media Awards
On 30 November 2018, Mind celebrated the very best portrayals of mental health in the media at the Virgin Money Giving Mind Media Awards, ending with Clarke Carlisle’s moving, heartfelt and utterly vital speech. You can rewatch the entire ceremony via their Facebook channel.
