Minding Minds recently took part in the Buzz Connects 'The Big Pitch' - a completion aimed at businesses in the Thames Valley. Similar to Dragons Den, with a £4k prize package, we pitched to a panel of judges from across the hospitality, marketing and financial sectors.
Up against a wide array of business in the health and wellbeing sectors, legal and some fantastic innovative small enterprises it finally came down to ourselves and the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice based near Maidenhead. We were happy to come a very close second to Alexander Devine. Having just opened a purpose built facility they will be able to use the £4K worth of services to great effect.
We had been so moved when hearing the AD pitch that we offered them, mid pitch, a free days training for some of their staff. The work they do can only benefit from Mental Health First Aid Training and we can't wait to take them up on the offer of a tour of the new buildings.
