To mark our 30th anniversary we pledged to donate 30 hours of our time to a local charity in 2018.  We received a wide range of well-deserving applications and after much deliberation, we've chosen to support York Mind.

The mental health charity is running the York Walls Walk on Friday 18th May as part of Mental Health Awareness Week, and with our PR support they aim to encourage 100 people to join in their celebration event and raise £500.

Partners supports York Mind York Walls Walk

Partners Group director Monica Green said: "We're very grateful to all the charities that took the time to contact us and apply for 30 free hours of our time and advice. We've chosen to support York Mind as we feel we can make a real difference to the York Walls Walk with the time and resources we have available.  We love the fact that's it's a local event for local people, using a York landmark to engage and include a wide variety of people who are willing to show their support for mental health issues. York Mind have seen a rise in demand for their services and must raise vital funds in order to continue to meet that demand and help even more people.

"The Partners team will certainly be taking part in the walk, and we'll be encouraging our clients and contacts to join us!"

Holly Bilton, Community Fundraiser at York Mind said: “Everyone at York Mind is absolutely delighted we’re working with The Partners Group to raise awareness of our fantastic York Walls Walk. Every penny raised from this event is vital, to ensure that York Mind can continue to meet the growing need for our services for better mental health in the area. We’re hoping to see lots of people taking on the historic route to show that together, we really can make a difference in York.’
