Mental Health Awareness Week – raising funds for Heads Together

Mental Health Awareness Week – raising funds for Heads Together

Alliance Healthcare UK raised over £850 for the mental health charity – Heads Together during the national Mental Health Awareness Week (14-21 May). Team members from across the business held Royal Wedding themed cake sales in support of the charity, which Prince Harry is patron for.

Preston Service Centre raised £70 for the charity, and at the Customer Service site in South Normanton the team raised an incredible £200 from the event. While at Support Centre in Chessington, canteen staff member Sandra Gardiner baked a beautiful three-tier wedding cake, raising £440.

Teams also took the opportunity to learn about the importance of recognising and understanding mental health, signposting information to its employee wellbeing partner – Lifeworks, that offers confidential support to colleagues and managers. Toby Carpenter, HR Director also featured in a short internal video played to the teams during the week-long event, to explain the wellbeing service available to them free of charge.
