Advent calendar draw 2019

This December, the team have been running a festive advent calendar draw with our colleagues across the Facilities Directorate, with all proceeds going to Leeds Mind. Leeds Mind are one of our chosen charity organisations and we have loved hosting and participating in regular events and activities to raise funds for them over the year.

Leeds Mind promotes positive mental health and wellbeing, and provides help and support to those who need it.

The aim of Leeds Mind’s work is to help people build on their strengths, overcome obstacles, and become more in control of their lives. They work to support the people of Leeds in ‘recovering’ from periods of poor mental health and living independently with their mental health condition. They offer a wide range of different services such as counselling and mental health training.

A winner every day

Prizes for each day of the Advent calendar were kindly donated by our suppliers, with star prizes including a Fitbit, Amazon Vouchers, First Direct Arena Tickets, an Alexa, Overnight stays, Afternoon Tea, Christmas Flower Displays, Children’s Toys, and many more.

During the month, we raised a whopping £1320 and had great fun filming the grand reveals! Here are a few of our favourites.
