Emma Bateson, Fundraising and Communications Lead at Lancashire Mind, said: “Mental Elf is always a fantastic, fun event and a great chance for businesses to engage with their colleagues and customers – no matter their size or sector.

“This year, we are reminding people that they are not alone. With more ways than ever before to get involved, we hope to see colleagues and friends unite at Mental Elf to promote the importance of looking after each other, and ourselves, this winter.

“More than ever, mental health really does matter.”

There will also be a range of free family activities on the day including storytelling, face painting and interactive wellbeing workshops.

Emma added: “A huge thank you to James Hall & Co. and all our corporate partners. We simply couldn’t do what we do without you and our amazing volunteer fundraisers.

“Sponsorship and fundraising events are so important and enable Lancashire Mind to continue working with schools, community groups and businesses across the county to promote resilience, prevention and awareness of mental health.

“With 1 in 4 people now experiencing poor mental health, and a huge increase in our demand for our services, this support means more than ever.”
