DM Recruitment team take on Shropshire Charity Litter Pick
On 24 November 2018, staff from DM Recruitment’s regional offices will put down the phones, and pick up litter, to raise awareness and funds for local mental health charity Shropshire Mind.
The DM Recruitment team will be armed with litter pickers, rubber gloves, and bin bags, and hope to collect dozens of bags of rubbish during their litter picking extravaganza which will take place in Broseley, Telford. The event will end with the team dropping off their bags at Veolia, where the team there will work their magic to sort and recycle the collected items.
As part of the challenge, the team will be raising money for Shropshire Mind, a mental health service which provides vital support groups and wellbeing activities for people who are suffering from emotional distress or mental health issues, across Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Church Stretton, Whitchurch, Bridgnorth, Market Drayton, and Oswestry.
DM Recruitment’s Managing Director Stuart Danks, comments:
“Our team was shocked to hear that across Shropshire, one in four people are affected by mental or emotional distress, and we wanted to do something to raise money for Shropshire Mind, a great local cause which is making a huge difference across our local community.
“Supporting people who are struggling with mental health issues is a cause close to DM Recruitment’s heart, and we acknowledge that mental health distress in the workplace is far too common in the UK, with 12% of sick days reportedly due to mental health distress, and one in six people reportedly experiencing mental health problems in the workplace. We want to do everything we can to support people who are struggling.
“Our sponsored litter pick will help to raise awareness of this issue and raise vital funds, so, here’s the big ask! If like us, you want to support Shropshire Mind, a fantastic local charity, please visit our fundraising page to find out more about our challenge, make a donation, and support the DM Recruitment team.”
