Our company charity is Mind, the mental health charity and our partnership also supports SAMH (the Scottish Association for Mental Health) and Mental Health Ireland.
We selected Mind by a company-wide vote and they’ll be our partner for at least two years.
Across the group hundreds of people have taken part in fundraising activities from the brave jumping out of planes, the fit running marathons, the creative baking cakes and almost everyone buying raffles tickets to support this great cause.
Here are a few of our fundraising highlights:
In Edinburgh a team completed a Gung Ho, a 5k run and climb over an inflatable obstacle course.
In Birmingham a team ran two Wolf Runs which are 10K runs in the countryside through mud, woods and obstacles.
22 members of the Leeds store slipped on their sensible shoes and walked from our Manchester store back to Leeds in a day!
And 20 members of the Manchester store scaled new heights taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge.
Charlotte Porter from Mind said
"This money will help us to provide life-changing support and information to people who are unwell, or worried and frightened for someone they care about. It will also help us to continue to be a strong collective voice for the one in four of us who will experience a mental health issue every year. Thank you so much to everyone from Harvey Nichols that has contributed."
Each site offers all or a combination of the benefits listed above.
