I’ve been overwhelmed by the support shown for RED January by Haines Watts offices and teams up and down the country. RED January aims to encourage individuals to challenge themselves to get active every day. Mind, the mental health charity partners RED January, a community initiative that encourages people to support their mental health by doing something active every single day.
January is tax season for us and an incredibly busy time of the year for our teams. But despite the pressure of getting tax returns and accounts completed for clients, our teams took time out to have a break from their desks and screens to look after their own wellbeing and mental health. Here at Haines Watts, we are passionate about the mental health and wellbeing of our employees and supporting charity initiatives.
January saw our teams taking part in Haines Watts Wear Red Active Fridays. A combination of wearing red to raise money for Mind and taking part in team activities on each Friday in January. We did team lunchtime walks, stepping up (leaving our desks to walk around for 5 minutes every hour), boardroom table games, yoga and deskercise.
We’ve raised at total of £3385 for Mind on our JustGiving pages and many of our offices have donated goods to their local Mind shops. I’d really like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who took part or donated goods or money to this amazing cause.
