The national law firm Stephensons has celebrated 12 months of fundraising by presenting Mind - the mental health charity – with a cheque for £3,703.76.
The charity - which was chosen as Charity of the Year by Stephensons staff in 2017 - provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. Mind works alongside local and regional groups to support more than 390,000 people across England and Wales.
Anna Murray, Corporate Partnerships Manager for Mind, said: “We are hugely grateful to Stephensons for their support of Mind as their charity of the year and for helping to ensure that we can support the one in four people who experience a mental health problem in any given year.
“Every penny raised over the course of this partnership will allow us to continue to be there for people who need it, when they need it the most and to fight to make sure that everyone with a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.”
Stephensons’ Charity of the Year initiative sees staff from across the firm taking part in fundraising and volunteering activity for the chosen charity across a full twelve months. In previous years, the firm has raised tens-of-thousands of pounds in support of local and national organisations, with staff taking part in everything from dress-down-days, to bake sales, marathons and 10K runs.
Stephensons Chairwoman, Ann Harrison, said: “As always, our staff have wholeheartedly entered into the spirit of raising money for our charity of the year. We are delighted to be able to assist Mind in funding their excellent work in communities across the UK.”
