Our Chosen Charity of the Year 2017
It is thought that one in four of us will experience mental health problems in our lifetimes, and with suicide being one of the leading cause of deaths for under 40 in the UK, it’s time to remove the stigma behind issues we face regarding mental health.
This is why the team at Wex have committed to raise money for our chosen charity of 2017, Norwich & Central Norfolk Mind. We do this in many ways, including staff auctions, public events, Norwich 100 Bike Ride, Norwich 10K, and good old fashioned bake sales. Our fundraising target this year is £7500, but importantly, we also want to raise awareness for this very deserving charity and give a little extra.
On October 3rd 2017, we conducted a free photography workshop for service users of Mind at the Wellbeing Service in Norwich. For more information about Wellbeing, visit: https://www.wellbeingnands.co.uk/.
