We wanted to say a huge thanks to employees at Contra Vision for raising £700 (including gift aid) to support our local mental health services, by walking an amazing four million steps in one month.
Recently, staff at the Stockport-based perforated window film manufacturer took part in a challenge to do 1 million steps during the month of July to raise money for us as their Charity of the Year for 2021.
By the end of the month the employees had exceeded the initial target, and did a total of 4,266,212 steps.
We were chosen as Contra Vision’s Charity of the Year due to the global events of the past year, as it was important for them to support a local charity.
They also recognised that, because of lockdown, more people have been struggling with their mental health which is why choosing a charity that looks after the mental wellness of the community was key.
For the rest of the year, Contra Vision will continue to take part in a variety of fundraising activities of which the proceeds will all be donated to support our work.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this fantastic effort.
