Benenden health fundraising takes a healthy turn in 2014

5th February 2014

Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the mental health charity Mind have been announced as benenden health’s employee-championed local and national charities for 2014.

Staff at the York-based mutual organisation voted for the selected health charities to receive the proceeds of all employee-led fundraising over the next twelve months. Last year staff raised over £3700 through a variety of internal and external fundraising events – including a charity sky dive and a team in the Jane Tomlinson 10K Run For All, and in 2014 further such activities are planned.

Paul Keenan, Head of Communications at benenden health said: “This year we will be supporting two very worthwhile charities through various internal fundraising activities. The charities both work to raise awareness and funds for different health issues and as a healthcare provider it’s great to be able to support them as our appointed charities.

“Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a local charity we have supported in the past and has once again been a very popular choice with our staff. The work they do to provide a life-saving rapid response emergency service for so many people in our local area is outstanding and we are proud to support them once again in 2014.  

“We are also looking forward to supporting Mind as our national charity of the year – they play a hugely important role in raising awareness of mental health problems and providing support to those in need.

“Community is at the heart of our ethos as a mutual not-for-profit and our staff have always been keen to get involved wherever possible with charity work in the local area. We are very much looking forward to working with both of these charities during the year ahead and helping them to make a difference.”

Kathleen Miles, Director of Fundraising at Mind said: “We are delighted that staff at benenden health have chosen Mind as one of their charities of choice and we want to say huge thank you to everyone who voted for us.

“We wouldn’t be able to continue our work supporting the one in four people who experience a mental health problem every year without the support of organisations like benenden health. Without these partnerships, we may not be able to keep our Infoline running, a confidential advice helpline for those in desperate need, or our campaigning activity, which ensures that the voices of those who often face stigma and discrimination every day are finally heard.”

David Hebden, Community Fundraiser for the YAA added: “Our thanks go benenden health and their staff for choosing to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in 2014.  As an independent Charity, we receive no direct government funding so rely heavily on the support from organisations such as Benenden Health to help us raise the vital funds we need.  It costs £9990 each day to keep both our helicopter in the air, and we are grateful for every donation given.”
