Across Regard we have been raising money for our chosen charity YoungMinds. YoungMinds is a charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young adults. This month particularly we have been involved in a whole host of different fundraising activities.
Newton House, our residential service in Newbury recently got involved in the #HelloYellow campaign which YoungMinds have been running this month to raise the awareness of mental health issues and money for the cause.
Staff and the people we support at Newton House got involved by making decorations and cooking yellow foods, as can be seen in the photographs, everything that could be turned yellow was. Everyone dressed in yellow and some people even painted their faces to match.
Service Manager, Tracey Parker, wanted to give a special thank you to Chloe, who lives at the service and the whole staff team for organising and supporting a very enjoyable afternoon.
The event raised over £25 for the charity, contributing to over £4500 raised by Regard so far this year.
Everyone at Newton House is looking forward to their next fundraising event.
