After a year of fundraising we were delighted to present Rachel from Birmingham Mind with a cheque for £9,000. Birmingham Mind is one of two charities we have been suporting over the last 12 months – the other is the Alzheimer’s Society.
As well as fundraising for the charity we have been raising awareness of mental health issues and to date, 22 members of staff have been trained in Mental Health First Aid.
Helen Wadley, CEO of Birmingham Mind said, “We want to thank McDermotts for choosing us as their charity of the year and for their generosity. They have not only helped us financially but have also engaged with our Mental Health First Aid Training programme, providing invaluable support for their employees. We are truly grateful and we will ensure that the money is used to benefit people who are struggling with/at risk from mental health difficulties”
