In 2016 we became a corporate partner of Mind, the country's leading mental health charity. This was in response to the loss of a much loved member of the 2Simple family, Jonny Zucker, who tragically took his own life.
One of the ways we raise money for Mind is through #EduFootyAid, our charity football initiative for the education community. And we're very excited to be bringing #EduFootyAid to Bett 2020, Europe's largest education event. Over 50 amazing teachers are travelling from across the country to take part in a charity 5-aside tournament inside the Excel Arena and they need your support!
One in four people experience a mental health problem each year but worryingly there is evidence that this rises to one in three for primary school teachers, which may be the a result of the pressure teachers are under. Mind's mission is to ensure that every person experiencing a mental health problem receives the support and respect they deserve. This includes removing stigmas and lobbying Government to make mental health a priority. Progress has been made but there is a very long way to go and we can only get there if we work together.
If you would like to show your support for Mind and our inspirational teachers/players you can make a donation on our JustGiving page.
