Our charity partner for 2017/18 is…Mind UK!
Mind UK provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They also campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Over half of 18-24 year olds in the UK struggle in silence with their mental health, and Mind’s main role is to ensure nobody has to face a mental health issue alone.
We’re thrilled to be supporting such a fantastic charity which is close to our hearts . We have lots of exciting charity events in store and we can’t wait to keep you updated on our fundraising progress throughout the year.
Each year we also take part in the annual “Do It For You” day organised by Sheffield Children’s Hospital which gives current and former childhood cancer patients the opportunity to take part in a number of different sports. Once again, we loved taking part in the event in November 2015 and you can take a look at some of the highlights from the day here.
2016/17 saw us take part in a number of events including bake sales, themed training sessions, a 24 hour cycle-a-thon and most impressively running the Sheffield Half Marathon! Our grand total was over £1500 raised in support of Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Charity.
