Orange Genie’s Fund-Raising Heroes Support Buckinghamshire Mind

MindAround one in four UK adults will experience a mental health issue this year. Workplace stress is now the single biggest cause of absence from UK workplaces. Orange Genie have made a commitment to improve staff and stakeholder wellbeing, and that meant we had to do something to safeguard and improve the mental health of our people.

We’ve taken action in a number of areas, including training some of our staff as mental health first aiders and offering free professional counselling on a confidential helpline through our benefits and rewards platform, Orange Genie Edge.

One of the most important parts of this work is raising awareness among our people and in the wider community; to open a conversation about mental health and to make sure it remains open.

To help us do this, we chose Buckinghamshire Mind as our charity partner for 2018/19. This has allowed an awareness of their great work to become a normal part of everyday business here at Orange Genie, through the planning and execution of fundraising activities. We’ve set an ambitious fund-raising target of £10,000 and our staff have embraced the challenge with their usual relentless enthusiasm and energy.

  • They’ve run, kayaked and biked.
  • They’ve walked hundreds of miles.
  • They’ve literally climbed mountains.
  • They’ve baked cakes.
  • They’ve painted fingernails.
  • They’ve come to the office in their “normal” clothes.
  • They’ve bought each other’s stuff.
  • They’ve even given up their secret Santa!

It often seems that no effort is too great and no sacrifice is too terrible for the marvellous Orange Genie fund-raising machine and make no mistake, they’re not finished yet. We have every expectation that we’ll reach our target, challenging as it is.

Buckinghamshire Mind are so impressed with what we’ve been doing that they’ve written a case study about us for their own website. Click the button below to read more.
