Leading estate agency and property services provider Connells Group is pleased to announce leading mental health charity Mind as its new charity partner.
The formation of the partnership, effective now, follows a colleague survey to choose a new charity, and will combine the fundraising efforts of the Group’s Connells Residential and Sequence estate agency businesses, plus supporting head office functions* to raise money and awareness for Mind. Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales, providing advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. The charity campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding, and provide support directly to those who need it most.
“We encouraged our employees to choose a charity that they would like to support,” says David Plumtree, Connells Group Estate Agency Chief Executive. “Mind was the overwhelming consensus, as it is a cause that has really resonated with our workforce, especially at this time where current events have forced us to recognise any issues with the mental health of ourselves and those close to us, and where more people have needed Mind more than ever before.
“We are eager to kick off our new partnership and raise plenty of money to support Mind to continue to do their good work through a calendar of exciting fundraising activities,” concludes David.
“We are so grateful to Connells Group for supporting Mind to be there for anyone affected by a mental health problem,” says Emma Ihsan, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Mind. “The pandemic has had a devastating effect on the nation’s mental health, especially for those of us with existing mental health problems, and it is vital that everyone has access to the right support, advice and information when they need it.
“The money they raise will help support our Infoline, and the campaigning we do to ensure that the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem each year, do not face it alone,” concludes Emma.
