In 2020, during a company away day, we worked as a team to discover our company purpose, Enabling Greatness.
This was done through the development of a number of different principles, one being, “We do what we can to give back.” We’ve always been advocates for giving back to our communities, however this year, we have made the decision to have a charity of the year. A charity which we will support throughout the whole of 2021.
We are so pleased to announce that our chosen Charity of the Year 2021 is…
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem, campaigning to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
“One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year” - Mind
Mental health is always an important subject to raise awareness of, but it feels particularly pertinent right now. With the struggles wrought by the pandemic, mental health issues have risen; new problems developed, and; existing problems worsened. So, it is more crucial than ever that we shine a light on it as much as possible.
“The devastating loss of life, the impact of lockdown and loneliness, and the inevitable recession that lies ahead will affect all of us.” - Mind
Luckily, at CCM, our directors are extremely devoted to the wellbeing of the team, both at work and at home. In the past year, we’ve implemented many initiatives to improve our employees’ support systems, such as the employment of our Head of People, Wellness Wednesday sessions, regular catch ups and team challenges to help emulate togetherness during the various periods of lockdown.
All of these efforts, in addition to our company principles, mirror Mind’s purpose, making them the perfect choice for our Charity of the Year 2021.
We have some really exciting fundraising ideas in the pipeline, and can’t wait to get started and help shout about this wonderful charity. Stay tuned to find out what we get up to and how you can help us to help Mind 💙
