April 2021: Issue Twelve

April 2021:

Our Team regularly talks about the importance of looking after our physical and mental well-being, so in February we decided to turn words into action and set our Team a fundraising challenge!  We are aiming to walk, run or cycle the 4,400 miles which is the approximate distance between our UK and Dubai offices. “Team Ten UK to Dubai”

Not only will the exercise be good for our wellbeing, we will also be raising awareness and financial support for the charity Mind who offer support for anyone with mental health issues.  Mind believes no one should face a mental health problem alone.

Whether you are stressed, languishing, depressed or in crisis. Mind will listen, give support, advice and fight your corner.

If you would like to donate Ten Pounds/Dirhams/Dollars please visit our GoFundMe page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/team10uktodubaiSo far our Team has covered over 500 miles and raised over £300.00.

If you would like to follow our progress, keep in touch with us on our Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
