Our Fundraising Coffee Morning for the Mental Health Foundation
For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we decided to host a coffee morning with a difference.
With a variety of tasty baked goods in hand, we held the fundraising event on 17th May. It wasn’t a difficult decision to find a worthy cause to donate to – the Mental Health Foundation has been the UK’s leading charity for mental health since 1949.
Through community and peer programmes, research, public engagement, and advocacy, they’re doing valuable work. With prevention at the heart of their mission, the Foundation’s aim is to drive change by tackling mental health problems at their source.
Mental Health Awareness Week is an important time for Teconnex. As a global team, we recognise the diversity within our individual health – both physically and mentally. Acknowledgement isn’t quite enough, either; that’s why we make it a priority to outwardly support those struggling with their mental health, to be aware of all differences and difficulties, and to make the workplace accessible for all. Fundraising for the Mental Health Foundation is one example of how we raise awareness and change perceptions – but it’s not the only way we do so.
So, throughout Mental Health Awareness Week and beyond, we aim to consistently champion those struggling with their mental health. We de-stigmatise, and challenge perceptions. Because, everyone on our team deserves to be recognised.
And, we’re delighted to announce that the coffee morning raised a huge £368.25!
Additionally, we at Teconnex agreed to match the raised fund. Meaning that: together, we’ve managed to donate a whopping £736.50 to the Mental Health Foundation.
We’re thrilled by the results of the fundraiser, and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported the worthy cause by donating the baked goods, buying them, or simply donating the money.
Once again, thank you for your support!
