Runcorn based Drivers Direct, one of the UK’s leading providers of temporary and permanent drivers to commercial organisations, have unveiled the chosen charity for their year’s fundraising efforts as Mind.
Mind is a mental health charity in England and Wales, founded in 1946 with Stephen Fry as the current president. They provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Constantly campaigning to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Each year, employees are encouraged to nominate a charity and Mind was chosen for its excellent work in supporting mental health. Previous beneficiaries of the company’s fundraising efforts include Macmillan, the Victory Services Club and NSPCC – who recently received a donation of £2,500.
Gethin Roberts, Owner and Managing Director at Drivers Direct, comments: “Every year we highlight the importance of selecting a charity to raise money throughout the months. We believe in listening to our teams and working with the causes close to their hearts – Mind was a worthy suggestion, and one we are incredibly proud to support this year and work hard to raise as much money as we can to help them.”
Mind Community Fundraising Coordinator Katie Quick adds: “We’re delighted to have been selected as Drivers Directs Charity of the Year and would like to thank the staff who nominated us showing their support for our work to help support people experiencing mental health problems.”
