As a Yorkshire based company, we always like to do our best to give back and support our local community. Whether this is to improve the area we live in or to create a lasting positive impact that benefits everybody. That is why each year we decide on a local charity to sponsor.
After raising an incredible £4,000 for The Island in 2019. We are delighted to announce that for 2020, we have chosen to sponsor a local charity called ‘York Mind’. They are an amazing organisation which aims to empower individuals experiencing mental ill-health to start on the pathway to recovery. We are looking forward to raising money for them by taking part in a variety of challenges and activities such as bake-offs, charity runs, sweepstakes and whatever we can to help this great cause.
An important question you may be asking is who are York Mind & what do they do?
‘York Mind exists in order to promote recovery from mental ill-health, emotional well-being and independent living. We believe that the condition should never define the person and consequently, our recovery model encompasses every aspect of our clients’ lives: personal, social and professional.’ – York Mind.
They provide a wide range of services such as:
Action Towards Inclusion which offers support to people who are unemployed and experiencing difficulties relating to health, social exclusion, poverty & employability skills.
Counselling which offers a regular space to talk about the issues that you have in your life.
Young People’s Service which offers support to young people from 9 – 25 who are experiencing difficulties with their emotional wellbeing.
