Thackray Williams Solicitors
Thackray Wiliams Solicitors, a leading law firm in south London and Kent, raised a fantastic £1,100 for Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind after choosing us as their Charity of the Year for 2019/20.
Over 12 months, staff from the solicitors’ office took part in a number of fundraising activities, including Christmas Jumper Day, bake sales and their annual autumn quiz. Staff members Linda and Natasha (pictured) also volunteered at the MindCare Dementia Centre Christmas party, serving refreshments and giving gifts out to guests.
Helen Scutt, who led the Charity of the Year Partnership for Thackray Williams, commented: “Everyone in our organisation knows or has been close to someone affected by mental health problems or dementia, and so we were passionate about fundraising for BLG Mind.
“As a local business, it is good to know that every penny we raised will go towards providing life-changing and often life-saving support to people living locally.”
English Football League (the EFL)
Working in partnership with National Mind, we are one of a number of local Minds partnered with the English Football League (the EFL). With over 21 million fans attending EFL matches each season (and 55 million watching on TV), this partnership was a brilliant opportunity for the Mind network to promote awareness and understanding of mental health amongst football fans, and to help more people living with mental health problems access the support they need.
Our local teams Charlton Athletic and Millwall FC have supported us this season with highly successful match day collections reaching thousands of local fans.
We have also delivered a series of mental health at work training sessions to support staff and players with their mental health and wellbeing.
