A colourful weekend!

The accounts team from Wiltshire based The Pension Solutions Group, made up of Katie, Pearl, Bethany and Alecia, participated in the Bath Colour Run last weekend, raising nearly £700 for Wiltshire Mind.

The event which took place at Bath Racecourse takes in 20 obstacles over a 5km run.

Appreciating how everyone’s mental health has been affected over the course of the pandemic, the team wanted to raise funds for Wiltshire Mind to enable us to continue to provide our services across Wiltshire.

Katie commented:

We had a fab day taking part in the Colour Obstacle Rush. It was tough work, 5k and 20 obstacles, all whilst people around you were throwing paint in your face, but it was well worth it to know we had raised money for such a good cause, and as far as runs go for fundraising, this one was particularly fun! We chose to support Wiltshire Mind because we know how hard the last year and a half has been for everyone. We are all in the same boat, but we have all experienced it in very different ways. Everyone’s mental health has been affected and it is charities like Wiltshire Mind that provide ample support.”

To provide mental health support to our communities across Wiltshire through 2021, we need to raise £465 a day. We rely on the generous donations of our supporters and local fundraising activity, which has been hit hard by the pandemic and the social restrictions.

If you would like to help raise funds for Wiltshire Mind to enable us to continue providing mental health support work across the county, please email fundraising@wiltshiremind.co.uk to see how we can support you.

We are an independent charity, and every penny fundraised allows us to extend our support to more people in Wiltshire. We really value your fundraising and would love to work with you.
