Paxton begins fundraising for mental health charity Mind

Sussex-based Paxton has partnered with the mental health charity Mind in Brighton & Hove, to raise funds for those suffering from mental health issues.

Each year, Paxton’s employees hold a vote to decide on the company’s Charity of the Year, which employees then support by undertaking a variety of fundraising initiatives to help maximise funds.

Kate Hotson, Project & Events Manager at Paxton, organises the charity initiative for the company’s employees to take part in. She explains: “Supporting local charities means a lot to us at Paxton as our people are keen for fundraising efforts planned throughout the year to help our local community.

“We have all been through an extraordinary time in the last couple of years and we still don’t know the long-term effect of the pandemic on people’s mental health, so supporting Mind in Brighton & Hove, and raising awareness about mental health issues can only be a good thing.”

Originally opening its doors in 1971, Mind in Brighton & Hove is affiliated with the national brand but is funded independently as a regional service. It partners with businesses to help them reach the fundraising goals they need to support the amount of people they work with each year. Throughout 2020-2021 the charity supported 11,752 people across the county of Sussex.

Jodie Wallis is the Director of Operations for the charity and has been for the last 10 years. She explains: “Our clients come from a range of different backgrounds. Everyone is affected by mental health in one way or another, whether it is us directly or the people we care about.

“We are quite a small charity and don’t have a dedicated fundraising department. Working with companies like Paxton enables us to continue achieving our mission of helping our community and raising awareness about mental health.”

“It is great to be working with a local company supporting our community.”

You can support the efforts by donating on Paxton’s JustGiving page.
