We are delighted to announce our corporate charity partnership with Mental Health UK, who work all year round to support those living with mental illness. Over the next two years, we will be raising money for the charity with events and fundraisers across the UK and Ireland. We will also be working with the charity to help the mental health of our employees, including training mental health first aiders at each of our sites.
We have chosen today to announce our partnership because January 21st is known as ‘Blue Monday’. The third Monday in January is generally considered to be the gloomiest day of the year as the combination of poor weather, dark days, financial worry and the Christmas comedown combine.
So to kick start our partnership and recognise today, we are encouraging all of our staff to take part in their campaign to Brighten up Blue Monday and wear bright colours to raise awareness and funds for Mental Health UK, while connecting with and supporting their colleagues.
We’re extremely proud to support and raise awareness for Mental Health UK, both to our employees and stakeholder community.
