We are delighted to extend our support of the regional branches of Mind into 2021
It is Symonds & Sampson’s staff who chose which local charity the firm will support each year, and back in the tail end of 2019, Dorset Mind, Mind in Somerset, Devon Mind and Wiltshire Mind were selected for support during 2020. Great plans were made with each office holding an event through the year, and staff eagerly signing up to pull planes, row dragon boats, walk to work, wing walk and of course, bake cakes.
The year started well, with hugely successful coffee mornings in our Poundbury and Yeovil offices drawing a crowd and - thanks to very generous raffle prize donations - starting the fund-raising with a bang. But then came the virus, and very sadly, fund-raising opportunities were curtailed.
As a firm, we recognise that during these challenging times, the vital work carried out by these local charities to highlight the issues of, and improve mental health within our community are more important than ever. On World Mental Health Day, we are delighted therefore to announce that we will extend our support for the local branches of Mind into 2021, and let’s hope that we’ll have the opportunity to take part in some of the brilliant events planned, doing our bit to support the all-important journey to good mental health.
