Antalis marches for MIND

Antalis UK raised an impressive £3,214 for mental health charity, MIND, through a walking challenge organised by regional business director Gary Tilbrook.

Danielle and her son Josh taking part in March for MIND. Danielle and Josh walked as part of the Key Accounts Team at Antalis, who, collectively, walked 462 miles.

Throughout the month of May, the Antalis team walked the distance from Dublin to every single one of the company’s sites – equating to a whopping 1,614 miles! For every mile capped, Antalis donated £2 to MIND, a charity that provides advice and support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem.

The challenge began on May 10 in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness week, and was then extended to the rest of May for National Walking Month. After speaking to his team about the effects of COVID-19 on their mental wellbeing, Antalis regional business director Gary Tilbrook, came up with the idea of the Antalis team raising money for MIND, who continuously campaigns to improve mental health services, raise awareness, and promote understanding.

Antalis communications executive, human resources, Hayley James added: “A very big thank you to everyone who got involved in our walking challenge. Not only have you done something positive and proactive for your fitness and mental wellbeing, you have also raised valuable money for MIND.”
