Support us Charity of the Year We are very proud to be supported by a number of fantastic organisations. About Charity of the Year Fundraising. We really value the support of all our Charity of the Year and corporate supporters and really enjoy getting to know the staff throughout the course of the partnership. We welcome the support of groups that are able and willing to fundraise for us via challenges in the workplace, sponsored events and campaigns but we also welcome the support of organisations that are able to support us in kind, with donations or time, skills and expertise. As well as knowing you’re making a real difference to those facing mental health problems in Sheffield, charity partners also receive discounts on our training courses, invitations to social and fundraising events and opportunities to take part in campaigns and other awareness raising activities. In the past year we've had the pleasure of working with companies as diverse as Marks and Spencer, Nando’s, Sky, Nationwide, Santander and True North Brew and have been overwhelmed by the generosity and commitment of staff to support our work in the city Here are just a few examples of how organisations have supported us in the past year: M & S Fargate - Bag packs in store, staff bake sales and collections. Having a presence in such a high profile High Street venue was a great opportunity for us to raise our profile and the support of staff and customers was extremely gratifying. Nando's restaurant challenges - each restaurant in the region set a total and organised different events and activities to generate funds. In addition, staff helped paint the office and donated plants/planters and other furniture to keep the place looking shipshape! Nationwide Building Society - the staff raised money for us throughout the year and organised events such as Dress Down Friday's, raffles and themed days to raise mental health awareness and generate a few pounds. In addition, the staff helped us with our office mover, cleaning and decorating to get the Wellbeing Centre looking shipshape! Santander Garden Tidy - money and time was donated by staff to turn our derelict yard into something that both staff and service users can enjoy. Staff from the bank gave up a day to come and work with us and supplied tools and plants. Sheffield Half Pint Marathon - Thornbridge Brewery and True North Brew created a special ale in our honour and donated a percentage of all sales during the month of May. Customers could participate in a challenge to visit all the pubs participating in the promotion and gather points which they could exchange for priizes at the end of the challenge.
