An Amazing Year with Elite Group
We would like to thank one of our corporate fundraising partners, Elite Group, where staff have raised a brilliant £13,959.96 since the start of the year for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, by donating every month and getting involved in a range of fundraising events. Read on to discover some of their highlights.
One of the first organised events Elite Group staff took part in was the Wolf Run in April. A total of 22 team members from Elite Group completed the Wolf Run for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind.
Three Peaks Challenge
Their next big event was the Three Peaks Challenge. The three mountains attempted were Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon and ten members of Elite Group took on the huge challenge; Luke Moore, Luke Arnold, Laura Dewes, Laura Rollins, Paul Wilkinson, Phil Kolodynski, Charlie Stevens, Lisa McClusker, Andy White and Leah Turner. Four of the team managed to climb all three mountains, seven managed two mountains and nine climbed one mountain, so a big thank you to all who took part.
CW Mind skydive
Two team members from Elite Group Josh Lane and Andy White as well as a team members son Ben Chapman joined a number of other brave skydivers to take part in the Big CW Mind Skydive in May 2018. Over £1,000 was raised for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind by the participants from the Elite Group. Well done!
On behalf of Elite Group, company director Luke and his family organised a ball that took place in September. This raised a fantastic £3,250 which money has gone towards funding the following services at Coventry and Warwickshire Mind:
- 2 x Anxiety Management & Relaxation Courses (10 weeks)
- 2 x Coping with Low Mood and Depression (5 weeks)
- 2 x Wellbeing in Later Life (3 weeks)
- 2 x Improving Confidence and Self Esteem (5 weeks)
Congratulations to Elite Group on such an amazing, action-packed year!
