Welcome to Sport in Mind
8 months ago
We are excited to reveal that our Charity of the Year for 2020 is Sport in Mind.
chosen by our people
Every year, we look for a charity to support and get hundreds of applications from companies looking for our help. We like to try and keep things local where possible and this year we had three very local charities in the final employee vote.
Sport in Mind certainly captured the hearts and minds of our workforce as they were placed top in the vote that took place before Christmas, and we are delighted that we can now officially confirm our partnership for 2020.
who are Sport in Mind?
Sport in Mind is an award-winning, Reading-based, charity that promotes good mental health through sport and exercise. They help people who have suffered poor mental health to use sport as a means to feeling better about themselves and improve their mental health.
Their work has seen them grow dramatically as they work with the NHS to offer therapeutic ways of improving mental health. Their aim is to continue to expand so that their message can go as far as possible and help as many people as possible.

launching with a charity bus
At the launch of the charity at our Reading depot, we unveiled the new charity bus, wrapped in an advert for Sport in Mind.
The bus has always been a huge bonus for our charities and we hope that this helps to massively increase the awareness of the great work they do in Reading and the surrounding area.
The event was attended by many employees from both ourselves and the charity, with our Chief Executive Officer, Robert Williams, and Sport in Mind's Chairman, Paul McAdam, both giving speeches emphasising how important the partnership is for both organisations.
We look forward to a great year with the charity!
