Howes Percival’s Norwich office has raised over £8,000 for its Charity of the Year 2023, Norfolk & Waveney Mind.
Norfolk and Waveney Mind provides support and resources to assist individuals and family members, friends and work colleagues, who are struggling with their mental health. They play a crucial role in ensuring that no one has to face poor mental health alone.
The money was raised through a range of fundraising activities including bake sales, sweepstakes, and social lunches. A group took part in a sponsored 26-mile walk along the Marriott’s Way and a team entered the charity’s 5 a side football tournament. Three members of the office jumped out of a plane at 13,000 feet as part of the charity’s Annual Tandem Skydive. The office also hosted their annual Summer Classic Cycling event, as well as their festive quiz and Christmas jumper competition to round off the year. The final amount raised by staff was matched by the firm.
Howes Percival were finalists at the charity’s annual awards ceremony for the ‘Partner Wellbeing Initiative of the Year’ for their ‘Walking Wednesdays’ initiative, set up to encourage colleagues to check in with each other and boost their wellbeing by getting outside.
Rachel Walsh, Fundraising, Marketing and Communications Lead of Norfolk and Waveney Mind commented,
Each year the demand for our services increases as more and more people seek support for their mental health. As Norfolk and Waveney’s leading mental health charity, we helped over 35,000 local people last year through our wide range of services and programmes. Howes Percival’s generous contribution over the past year has helped us support local people with poor mental health, including piloting new projects such as climate anxiety support groups.
Chair of Howes Percival’s Norwich Office Charity Committee for 2023, Mandy Swift commented,
We have had a fantastic year supporting Norfolk & Waveney Mind and our team have enjoyed getting involved in so many different ways. We are proud to help raise mental health awareness and make a positive impact on mental health in our community.
I am pleased to announce that in 2024 our team has decided to support The Feed. Through the power of food, their mission is to empower communities in Norwich, ensuring each and every person has the support to eat well, live well, and feel connected.
