Out of the Box: Raising money for Mates in Mind

Following on from the success of the first ‘Gift Pax from Pexhurst’, we are delighted to have raised £300 in vital funds for workplace mental health charity Mates in Mind through another delicious food related campaign...

As part of the campaign, clients were able to claim a free Madras, Bhuna or Jalfrezi curry kit. In return, we asked that they make, enjoy, take a photo of their curry and send it back to us. For each photo sent in we donated £5 to the charity. A total of 55 clients and employees requested a free curry kit and to show our appreciation we rounded the figure to £300.

Mates in Mind works to address the stigma of poor mental health and promote positive mental wellbeing across industries, especially construction and related sectors including transport, logistics and manufacturing. They do this through supporting employers to address mental health within their workplace. We began our partnership with the charity in 2018 and have since made great inroads to changing attitudes towards mental health and wellbeing across the business and more widely within construction.

A representative from Mates in Mind said: “At a time when the Office of National Statistics is reporting the lowest levels of personal wellbeing scores for life satisfaction and anxiety levels, we continue to ask a huge amount from our people in the workplace. Now more than ever it’s vital that employers recognise the importance of providing mentally healthy working environments.

“Pexhurst’s donation will enable us at Mates in Mind to continue to support and enable employers to raise awareness and understanding of mental health; providing their workforce with skills and clarity to support themselves and those around them.”
