Charities have been really hard hit by the pandemic, especially those providing services to support mental health.
2 of our Grantees, CALM and Sport in Mind, have been particularly impacted.
We have been privileged to donate £20,000 to CALM to help them answer more of the calls and enquiries they receive and £11,000 to Sport in Mind to provide more sport equipment that can be used at home.
Our 5th and final gym at Norbury Park is now open!
What a proud and humbling moment as we celebrate the opening of the Norbury Outdoor gym, the 5th and final facility, to support the people of Croydon in promoting positive mental health through physical activity.
A massive thank you to all of you for the support in making this happen. We are delighted to report that a study by Croydon council has shown the huge impact this is having to people all over the borough in becoming more active, being social and having access to top-quality exercise equipment that can be used by everyone.
We are pleased to support Sport in Mind as they open provide more clubs around the UK.
Sport in Mind is a mental health sports charity using sport and physical activity to help aid the recovery of people experiencing mental health problems.
The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths every days.
We are pleased to support CALM in their creation of "Collectives" where they build communities for those most at risk through running, cycling and other sport.
