Raising awareness

Category: News & Written by Simon On May-22-2020 10:31:25

For Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 two of our charity partners, Intu Merry Hill and JJX Logistics teamed up to promote mental health awareness on a closed-off car park at the Merry Hill shopping centre. 


 


Both into Merry Hill and JJX have helped support us during the Coronavirus outbreak. Intu Merry have helped us get newsletters out to our service users and offered their help to provide support to people in need. 


JJX have helped raise £2764 for us over the last couple of months. Their first fundraiser was set by John their Managing director who originally planned to fully shave his head with the target of £500. But due to an amazing response of the fundraiser, the target was increased to £1000. Upon exceeding the £1000 target John did as promised and shave his head live on youtube. 


But it didn't end there, JJX continued to raise funds for us with two more of their members of staff agreeing to shave their heads as well with the target of £2000.

After the shaving of heads, JJX also held a silent auction for one of their model trucks which sold for £450!  



Thank you to both Intu Merry Hill and JJX Logistics for being such amazing charity partners and helping us to raise much needed mental health awareness.
