In April each year North Wales Housing choose a charity and staff pull together to fundraise. This year we are fundraising for Mind Cymru, the Welsh branch of the mental health charity. We started our fundraising with a lunchtime Bingo on Mental Health Awareness week. Join us on our journey to fundraise this year!
Fundraising total for Awyr Las
In 2020-21 we fundraised for Awyr Las, North Wales NHS charity. Since the Coronavirus pandemic, and the pressure the NHS has been under, we believed supporting this charity was more important than ever. As we were working from home, fundraising was bit more of a challenge, but that didn’t stop us, and we managed to raise £3,010, £10 over our target!
Part of this money was raised by an ‘Around the World in 80 days’ challenge, a wellbeing/fitness challenge for NWH staff and our families aiming to walk/cycle/run as far as we can around the world in 80 days, a target of 24,901 miles. The good news is that we succeeded! Read all about it here.
