Regard’s Benefits Team raised money and awareness this week for YoungMinds during ‘Yellow October.’
Nicole Kadoo, from the Benefits Team in the Kingston office organised a charity coffee morning which coincided with national coffee day last week.
This coffee morning was part of ‘Yellow October’ which we are participating in for our chosen charity, YoungMinds. All events we will be hosting will be discussed using the hashtag ‘#HelloYellow’ if you want to keep up to date throughout the month.
YoungMinds is a charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young adults.
Nicole, Julia, and Jake from the Benefits Team sold coffee and pastries throughout the day, all purchases came with a raffle ticket and there was a with a raffle to win a variety of prizes.
The team are still waiting for a final total as they are continuing to sell their products throughout the week, Nicole is hoping that the event will have raised lots of money for YoungMinds. Since June, Regard has raised over £4000 for the charity.
This event was the first of four, throughout the month of October a different department will organise a yellow event for YoungMinds each week. Everyone is excited to see how creative and competitive the departments get with marketing holding an entire yellow day including guess how many yellow sweets in the jar and hook-a-duck.
