Coventry Building Society BBQ

Representatives from Coventry and Warwickshire Mind with CBS staff.

What a great afternoon Coventry and Warwickshire Mind had at Coventry Building Society’s recent BBQ outreach event. It was an opportunity for us to raise money and awareness as well as socialise with other organisations.

It also gave us the chance to give CBS information on the services that we at CW Mind offer to help people overcome mental health issues, and gave them the opportunity to ask our staff questions about the services and our organisation as a whole.

During the event we were able to show staff at Coventry Building Society our new building as they got to see photographs of St Clair Gardens, which they generously helped raise money for.

It also gave our staff the chance to ask what Coventry Building Society does to help their staff’s mental health; they informed us that they offer a robust wellbeing programme for all members of staff, from managers to cashiers, along with services such as assistance lines and counselling for those who need it.

It was really positive to talk to some of the organisations that attended the outreach event, including Mercia MS Therapy Centre who were promoting their services along with their tombola stand.

Altogether the event was a huge success making staff at Coventry Building Society aware of the support CW Mind offer, and to see how their donations have helped us as an organisation, contributing to the success of St Clair Gardens.
