Exertis has set a target of £125,000 to raise in its newly formed charity committee’s inaugural year and unveiled its official partnership with Mental Health UK. Mental Health UK brings together the heritage and experience of four charities from across the country who’ve been supporting people with their mental health for nearly 50 years.
The Exertis charity committee is split into two broad categories – fundraising and volunteering – each with sub-committees to support them in achieving their strategic goals.
To celebrate the launch of its charity committee, Exertis has launched ‘Ride to Exertis Almo’ – an initiative where staff will amass distance by peddling on bikes to reach a goal of 1,750 miles, which is the equivalent of halfway between Exertis UK and Exertis Almo’s Philadelphia headquarters. Simultaneously,
staff at Exertis Almo in America will also be accumulating 1,750 miles by riding on bikes and will be raising money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to raise awareness of the importance of mental health in their own community.
