We're over the moon that employees at Agnew Group, one of Northern Ireland's top car retailers, have raised an amazing £40,000 for us.
The fundraising drive was down to the efforts of employees who went above and beyond during the pandemic, raising the money mainly through creative events and payroll donations. This achievement is particularly impressive when you consider that it's Agnew Group's first year of partnering with us and the money has been raised at a time when traditional fundraising activities have been restricted.
Yuile Magee, Group Managing Director at Agnew Group, says, "This was our first year partnering with MindWise and despite not being able to implement the initiatives we usually do during a typical fundraising year, we're delighted with the ambitious figure that we've achieved and know it will make an impact on the charity work."
MindWise CEO Anne Doherty says, "MindWise is absolutely amazed and delighted that Agnew Group staff have continued to go the extra mile during these unprecedented times. During the pandemic many people are facing issues affecting their own and their family's mental health and wellbeing, the management of which must be a priority for all. However, MindWise has been honoured to work with Agnew Group whose commitment and dedication has enabled devastated families to access mental health, wellbeing and money advice support. We all look forward to recovering from Covid-19 going forward and no doubt we will achieve this together."
This money will make a huge difference to our clients and we're very grateful to Agnew Group employees for their support. We look forward to working with them further and hope the partnership continues to be a wonderful success.
