Our team at Purchase Direct recently supported another worthwhile charity and were delighted to raise the grand total of over £2,100 for Mind in Mid Herts during Mental Health Awareness Week.
All employees within the business are given the opportunity to propose a chosen charity or community project to benefit from the fundraising which takes place twice a year. Most recently, Petra McMillan, Financial Controller at Purchase Direct, selected Mind in Mid Herts – a local, independent mental health provider in Hertfordshire for people aged 16 and over who are suffering from mental and emotional distress.
Staff enjoyed a fun-packed event, participating in various games and activities to raise money for the charity. Sharn Tomlinson, Chief Executive Officer at Mind in Mid Herts commented, “Thank you so much to Purchase Direct for the funds and for raising awareness. We really appreciate this donation which will help Mind in Mid Herts to provide prevention, recovery and support services in Hertfordshire to empower people to take control of their mental health.”
