Buckinghamshire Mind, the mental health charity, is delighted to announce a partnership with Natural Balance Foods, a company based in Aylesbury that produces the Nakd and Trek snack bars.
Employees at Natural Balance Foods have committed to raising £500 for Buckinghamshire Mind’s mental health services. The partnership was agreed following the successful delivery of workplace wellbeing training by Buckinghamshire Mind at the company’s offices in Long Crendon.
“Buckinghamshire Mind is delighted to partner and build on our existing relationship with Natural Balance Foods. The funds raised by their employees will be used to support people with mental health problems across the county. We are very impressed with the company’s commitment to the mental health wellbeing of its employees, which has been demonstrated by its investment in workplace wellbeing training. We look forward to working more closely with the team at Natural Balance Foods over the coming year.”
Andrea McCubbin, Chief Executive of Buckinghamshire Mind.
Natural Balance Foods’ mission is to ‘increase world happiness with yummy healthy snacks, humour and helpfulness’. The partnership with Buckinghamshire Mind adds a further element to this mission.
“At Natural Balance Foods our company values are ‘Happy, Healthy, Helpful’. We have created an internal ‘Culture Buddies’ program enabling team members to put forward ideas to support our values and, as a result, we have become more focused as a company on promoting not only the physical health, but also the mental health of all our employees.
During 2018, Buckinghamshire Mind visited our office and presented ‘Wellbeing in the Workplace’ to our teams and supported the creation of our mental health wellbeing noticeboard for our office. We believe in the importance of a good physical working environment and taking regular breaks, enabling everyone to feel healthy, motivated and happy. Buckinghamshire Mind is a great local charity to partner with and we look forward to planning many events during this year to raise as much money and awareness as possible.”
