Belvoir Group charity fundraiser hits its stride!

Link to Fundraising news

After months of home working, the Belvoir Group Central Office Support Team celebrated a post-lockdown reunion with an epic 23-mile charity fundraiser walk, raising over £6k for Mind, the mental health charity.

“Two-thirds of people with existing mental health problems have reported that their mental health and well-being worsened during the pandemic,” said Belvoir Marketing Director Kiara Simmance.

“As a team, we decided to raise funds for Mind, who do so much to help ensure that nobody faces mental health problems alone.”

Louise George, Chief Financial Officer said, “The event took place around Rutland Water in Rutland, and we started with a total of 24 walkers and a dog called Murtle. Nine walkers plus the dog were scheduled to stop at lunchtime, after nine miles, and the remainder of us went for the full Rutland Water challenge experience of 23 miles.”

Ian O’Reilly, Head Fundraising at Mind, said, “It continues to be a really challenging time and many of us will be feeling the impact of the pandemic on our mental health and wellbeing, especially for those of us with existing mental health problems.
