National charity partnership
Calling all game players, quiz takers and record breakers. It’s time to get your game face on because in the run up to World Mental Health Day (Saturday 10 October) we want you to challenge your colleagues to use their skills in some fun games and activities to raise funds for our charity partnership.
Mental health problems can affect anyone, any day of the year, but World Mental Health Day is a great time to show your support and start learning more about mental wellbeing.
Thank you to your incredible efforts so far, this week also sees the launch of our partnership pilot services to help explore the role our communities can play in improving mental wellbeing.
Raise your game and fundraise: 5 – 11 October
Whilst we know colleagues fundraise all year round, there’ll be some weeks this year where we want colleagues to really up their fundraising efforts to support. From 5 – 11 October, we’re launching our next big fundraising week in the run up to World Mental Health Day.
Here you can download a fundraising guide, posters and other materials to help plan your fundraising activity. You can also find details on how to join the Big Virtual Quiz for Members and Colleagues.
