Roger Platt helped to raise almost £70,000 for Mind in 2022, concluding a successful second year of partnership between the estate agency’s parent company Connells Group and the mental health charity.
Colleagues from across the Roger Platt network fundraised in a variety of ways, including fitness challenges, community events and a nationwide company initiative to mark World Mental Health Day in October.
“We are extremely proud to have raised another significant amount for Mind in the second year of our partnership”, says David Plumtree, Connells Group Estate Agency Chief Executive. “Thank you to everyone who took part, organised, and supported all our charity efforts throughout the year. It has been great to see all our colleagues come together for this great cause, and we look forward to another year of supporting Mind and the vitally important work they do.”
Charlotte Porter, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Mind said: “We are so thankful to Connells Group for their fundraising efforts over the last year and their continued support throughout their partnership with us.
“The pandemic has taken a toll on the nation’s mental health, and the cost-of-living crisis is only making things worse. The money raised by Connells Group will help us to support the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem every year through funding our Mind Infoline, information and advice services, and campaigning activities.”
Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales, providing advice and support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem. The charity campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and provide support directly to those who need it most.
