D2 Rail Support Mind in Charity Bingo and Quiz Fundraiser

At D2 Rail our employees physical and mental health is paramount. We have a Health and Safety working group that make sure we work safely, and understand how to assess situations, and challenge anything we deem to be unsafe. We also have a Mental Health and Wellbeing group that look at how we can take better care of ourselves when dealing with mental health and wellbeing. These groups issue out information bulletins and briefing for both physical and mental health and all the factors that surround these topics.

 

As part of our regular D2 Rail team brief we asked our teams what charities they would like to support in addition to our chosen charity the Mustard Tree, and our teams chose MIND, which is a charity that focuses on better mental health for everyone.

 

Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness, and promote understanding about mental health. Mind have been a fantastic support to so many throughout the pandemic. COVID 19 has created a whole new level of anxiety for people, and Mind have stepped up to the challenge of supporting in any way they can.

 

This may be through connecting minds, bringing people together, helping organisations who want to join the fight for mental health, or by meeting the mental health crisis from the pandemic head on, by supporting people through face to face and online services. Mind fight for better services and rights for people with mental health problems, and push to improve public attitudes towards mental health.

 

To help support this fantastic charity our D2 Rail Team hosted a virtual Bingo and Quiz night, charging a minimum of £5.00 donation to join the evening. There was a great turn out and several large donations to support the fundraising event, so far, we have a total of £360.00 raised. If you would like to make a donation and help support this amazing charity, please click on the link and donate.

 

We are proud to support Mind and their efforts to make sure mental health is not hidden anymore, that mental health is now something to be honest about and not ashamed of. The Mind community have been at the heart of this transformation, and we support them in this change.
