Cripps Pemberton Greenish raise thousands for charity
Cripps Pemberton Greenish has announced a record year of fundraising, donating over £28,000 to its charity of the year, Rethink Mental Illness.
Staff from across the firm have participated in a series of different fundraising activities including the Tour de Cripps, a quiz night and a sky dive. One of the most gruelling activities involved thirteen individuals climbing the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales.
Clare Hyland, Senior Partner at Cripps Pemberton Greenish, commented: “We are really proud to have worked alongside Rethink over the past year and to have raised such a large amount to support the fantastic work they do.
Mental health issues can impact so many of our lives, but for a lot of people there is still a stigma attached. The work Rethink do to address this is so inspiring, and it’s great to see mental health illness starting to be discussed more openly”.
With over 200 mental health services and support groups throughout the country, Rethink supports tens of thousands of people every year providing expert advice and information to individuals severely affected by mental illness.
Flora Bannerman, corporate partnerships assistant at Rethink said: “In 2018-2019 Cripps Pemberton Greenish raised over £28,000 for Rethink Mental Illness – nearly doubling their initial target. The money covers the cost of support for 733 people via our vital Advice and Information Service. We help people who are personally affected by mental illness, as well as people who want to help a family member, colleague, or someone they care for. The service offers in-depth support – calls can often last up to 40 minutes, allowing someone to go through the issues they are facing at length with one of our expert advisers.
We are hugely grateful to everyone at Cripps Pemberton Greenish for their enthusiasm and support. Hundreds of people who rely on our advice and information will feel the impact of their hard work raising funds. Thank you so much for everything you have done.“
