Nottingham Grafters Charity Boxing Event | Our Chosen Charities

As some of you may have seen from our previous blog post, on 20th March Groubook are bringing together 30 brave hospitality workers to participate in the Nottingham Grafters Charity Boxing Event.


Driven by the knowledge that many workers in the Hospitality sector suffer mentally due to high-pressure environments, we chose two amazing mental health charities to donate to. We wanted to highlight these charities and give exposure to the important, life-saving work they conduct on a daily basis.


Mind


Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. There were 119,000 helpline calls answered in 2019-20, proving Mind is an invaluable service to those in need of support.


"We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We'll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner."

With Mind, you wont ever be without support. Click here for their Information and Support page, detailing everything from types of mental health problems, advice for helping someone else and how to find a therapist.





CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably)


Simply put, CALM exist to take a stand against suicide; the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. By provoking conversation, running life-changing services and bringing people together, CALM aim to prove that life is always worth living.


"125 lives are lost every week to suicide. And 75% of all UK suicides are male. We exist to change this."

They understand that anyone can hit a crisis point. Their confidential helpline and webchats are open 5pm-Midnight, 365 days a year.



Their team tackle the stigma around mental health by offering practical suggestions for all of life’s problems – whether that’s anxiety, relationship concerns, health worries, money worries or suicidal thoughts. With a call every 66 seconds, CALM's staff listen, talk and help people struggling with life to make a plan so they can begin to look to the future.


They also acknowledge that losing someone to suicide provokes a completely different type of grief, and support those bereaved by suicide through their Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).
