Mind provides the resources that are essential to ensuring this, and we are proud to have them as a Charity partner. To raise awareness of mental health problems and to help support them in their fundraising efforts.”
One example of the fundraising efforts planned is Telent’s Learning and Development Manager, Laura Bentley taking part in the London Marathon for Mind on October 2nd 2022 to raise money for the charity.
“I’m delighted (and equal parts daunted) to be running the London Marathon this year. Mind is a wonderful charity and the resources and support they provide are invaluable. On a personal note, I’m so happy to be supporting a mental health charity as I’m an advocate for mental wellbeing and have also been on my own mental health journey (as many of us have) over the past two years. “
Mind also provides professional training in workplaces and campaigns on a range of issues that could affect anyone with a mental health problem, such as protection of legal rights, and employment.
Past fundraising activities completed by Telent include sponsored walks, runs and cycles across the UK.
Telent’s previous chosen charity was The Alzheimer’s Society, for which the company raised £185,000 between 2019 and 2021.
Fundraising included a run, walk, and cycle of more than 53 marathons in an effort to spell out ‘Telent4Alzheimers’ across the United Kingdom. In 2021, Team Telent extended its ‘Let’s go to Tokyo’ charity walk for Alzheimer’s to an ‘around the world’ challenge after reaching the original target two months early.
