Each year, the 78 staff at Forrester Sylvester Mackett Solicitors nominate and vote for their charity of the year. Wiltshire Mind has been chosen as the firm’s 2018 charity.
Wiltshire Mind is a local independent mental health charity providing services across Wiltshire. Established in 1993, Wiltshire Mind runs support groups, counselling, mental health awareness training, a telephone service and a charity shop.
Forrester Sylvester Mackett will be fundraising throughout 2018, all in aid of Wiltshire Mind. The firm will be running regular dress-down days, cake sales and one off events such as a summer quiz.
Rhiannon Eveleigh, Marketing Manager for Forrester Sylvester Mackett said “Our staff generally vote with their heart for the charity of the year, so this nomination demonstrates that mental health issues affect so many people. We are delighted to be supporting a charity so local to us, which is doing such important work in the community.”
Carolyn Beale, Chief Executive of Wiltshire Mind commented “All of us at Wiltshire Mind are delighted that we have been selected as Forrester Sylvester Mackett’s 2018 charity of the year. We are a small, local and totally unfunded charity, so a business such as this choosing to support us really does make a huge difference. We cannot continue to give Wiltshire residents the support we currently offer without the financial backing of local businesses.”
