At this year’s Kids Planet Awards evening, we chose our charity of the year to be Young Minds (on a staff vote) and are delighted to have raised over £3000 for the mental health charity.
Young Minds is the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health. Their aim is to see a world where no young person feels alone with their mental health, and all young people get the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
We are thrilled to have raised so much and hope our contribution will go far in making a difference to many children and young people’s mental health.
Our fundraising even put us in the top 5% as fundraisers, as one Just Giving’s most successful pages in the month of September.
Michelle Kerrigan, Head of Relationship Development at YoungMinds said:
“We’re incredibly grateful that Kids Planet have supported YoungMinds by raising over £3,000 through its awards evening. The money raised is needed now more than ever in our fight for the mental health of children and young people across the UK.”
The team at Young Minds also kindly recorded a ‘Thank you’ video for the Kids Planet team:
Working with the community and social corporate responsibility is of utmost importance to Kids Planet.
