We are delighted to announce that local solicitors firm Grant Saw have not only hit their 2020/21 fundraising target of £2,500 for Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich Mind, but will also be continuing their partnership with us for a second year.
In what was a hugely challenging fundraising period due to the impact of Covid-19, the South East London-based law form held a series of successful fundraising events. This included a remote yoga session; a 100km running challenge; and, most recently, a 200km challenge, which saw 12 members of the team running, walking or cycling 200km each in a month, and which alone raised over £1,000.
Kalpa Prajapati, partner at Grant Saw, said: “We are delighted to be working with BLG Mind for a second year. The past 12 months have been tough given the impact of the pandemic and we have not been able to do many of our usual activities, from office bake sales through to quiz nights for staff and our clients, so to meet our annual target of £2,500 is incredible. Well done to everyone involved.
“BLG Mind are a fantastic local cause and we are thrilled to continue our relationship with them for a further 12 months.”
Charlotte Fletcher, Head of Development at BLG Mind, said: “We are delighted that Grant Saw has chosen to support us as their Charity of the Year for a second time. The team did incredibly well last year to raise £2,500 at a very testing time for the world with the COVID-19 pandemic, which also put additional strain on people’s mental health. At a time when demand for our services has increased but charity funding is being squeezed, we are extremely grateful for the support of Grant Saw.”
The new partnership between Grant Saw and BLG Mind will begin during Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, 10-16 May. The theme for this year’s week is Nature, and participants can participate in a 13km (8 mile) BLG Mind Three Boroughs Walk or one of our suggested walks in Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich, join one of free, week-long programme of wellbeing events, or send in a favourite photograph of the natural world to our Nature Photography Celebration.
