Higos Insurance Services supports South Somerset MindTuesday 16th February 2016
Higos Insurance Services has announced it is supporting South Somerset Mind, a local charity which is affiliated to Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. South Somerset Mind provides support and practical advice to aid the recovery of those in the local area suffering from mental health distress. With an ethos that there is no typical profile of someone accessing their services, South Somerset Mind treats each case individually and their support can be accessed by anyone, either directly or through a health care provider such as a GP.
Jack Clotworthy, Yeovil Branch Manager commented “Our Yeovil branch has sponsored the production of recycling containers for milk bottle tops which will be used by South Somerset Mind to raise vital funds for the charity. Higos staff are also collecting milk bottle tops to add to the total and hopefully raise more money for a great cause. We are always happy to support the local community and this worthwhile cause in particular.”
Zoe White, Community Fundraiser for South Somerset Mind commented “Thank you to Higos Insurance Services for generously sponsoring the recycling containers. We now have these at various locations across South Somerset & Mendip. Once enough milk bottle tops have been collected, Perry’s Recycling will donate the money raised back to South Somerset Mind. This project wouldn’t work without the recycling containers so we are very grateful for the support from the Higos Yeovil branch.”
If you’d like to get involved and recycle your milk bottle tops to raise money for South Somerset Mind please visit your local drop-off centre from the list below. All plastic milk bottle tops must be clean, free of any foil inserts and have a triangle with the number two in the lid.
