Orange Genie Group recognise that our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is vitally important to who we are as a company. Therefore Orange Genie have formed a charitable partnership with Buckinghamshire Mind to raise £10,000 over the course of the next 12 months to support the charities goals and objectives in our local community. It is important to us that we live our values and contribute by being a good and trusted neighbour. We believe that helping the local community is not just something we choose to do but is actually an important part of our business. We understand that local businesses and communities are closely linked and that we can have a significant impact on communities as a whole.
We recognise the pressures on mental health in the wider community and it is for this reason Orange Genie are delighted to announce their support of Buckinghamshire Mind as the Group’s charity partner for 2018/19. They deliver high quality community based services across the county of Buckinghamshire to reach out and ensure everyone with a mental health problem gets access to the help they need. Their mission is to ''provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem'' and they won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect they deserve. You can find out more about the work Buckinghamshire Mind do on their website.
Orange Genie aim to raise at least £10,000 for Buckinghamshire Mind over the course of the next 12 months through a series of fundraising activities. We are providing a day’s leave to staff to undertake charitable activities (cycle, swim, run, trek, hold a coffee morning... And plenty of things) in support of Buckinghamshire Mind as well as matched donations programme to help reach our ambitious target. You are highly recommended to join us in our fundraising journey by visiting our donation platform to sponsor our wonderful staff in their activities.
Our objective is to encourage our stakeholders, management and staff to play a significant part in the development of our local communities. Every year Buckinghamshire Mind calculates the number of ‘lives touched’ by the wonderfully diverse range of services delivered throughout the county. Last year (April 2016 to March 20167) they calculated that they touched 4,885 lives. This year (April 2017 to March 2018) this increased by a staggering 91%, touching 9,370 lives. As a result, we are inviting you to support Orange Genie helping Buckinghamshire Mind to touch more lives in 2018/2019 than they did in 2017/2018. Everyone experiencing a mental health problem deserves to have both support and respect. It won't happen if you don't help and act now.
