Between us at Taylor Made we have clocked up a healthy 35 miles in lunch time walks, a ferocious 85 miles of cycling, indulged in 70 fresh pastries, lovingly made and shared 50 cookies, 20 brownies and a couple of cakes, perfectly balanced this with 30 bananas, 20 apples, and 6 bunches of grapes – in aid of The Moving on Project.
Taylor Made Computer Solutions took part in a week of fundraising to support Mental Health Awareness Week and in the midst of all this, we’ve also raised £257.00 for The Moving On Project.
The Moving On Project is a local based charity in Fareham providing free support and counselling to young people aged 11-25, suffering from poor mental health including, depression, anxiety and bereavements.
To kick-start, the week there was a little indulgence available in the form on pastries, also followed by a friendly competition for the fastest 2.5 miles walk. The staff were able to get away from their desks and try to complete the walk in the quickest time. The winner then received a £20 Amazon prize later on in the week.
Towards the end of the week, we provided fresh fruit for all the staff and a mini library of books in our staff room, with everything from inspiring speeches from history and dream analysis to self-esteem and positive business psychology. We even held a bake sale, which gave everyone the chance to bake their finest cookies, cakes and savouries to raise even more money for The Moving On Project.
On the last day of Mental Health Awareness Week, we had a sponsored cycle. Everyone Active donated one of their bikes for us to use for the day. Nigel Taylor, our Managing Director agreed to donate £1 per mile. As a team, we managed to clock up 85 miles throughout the day.
Nigel Taylor said, “What a great week we’ve had. I am extremely pleased that Taylor Made took part in such a great cause. Mental Health is huge and showing our support is always important. The team did such an amazing job raising money for The Moving on Project, and I was honoured to donate towards this week, especially the cycling competition.”
Thanks to Taylor Made’s generosity, we managed to raise £257 for the Moving on Project.
