Norfolk & Waveney Mind – our charity for 2024

We’re delighted to announce our charity for 2024 will be Norfolk and Waveney Mind. A unanimous decision by the agency, we’re proud to be supporting the charity’s important mental health work and essential services across the East of England.

While most are familiar with the wider charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind offers community support, subsidised counselling services, local bereavement groups, REST Hubs in Norwich, Aylsham, Thetford, Great Yarmouth, and King’s Lynn, as well as many other services.

REST Hubs offer in-person and online support for anyone over the age of 18 facing mental health problems. The Norwich REST Hub, which is located on Bethel Street in the city centre and offers walk-in support for those in crisis, was set up in partnership with the NHS and The Feed, our charity of the year for 2023.

In 2023, we conducted a range of fundraising activities, including walking from Norwich to New York (without leaving our Fine City!), raising donations for more than 220 grocery boxes to support Norwich families through the charity’s Social Supermarket.

Chris Elliot, marketing manager for The Feed, said: “We are really grateful to have had the support of One Agency this year. They have supported us in a variety of ways, such as using our catering for their office events and hosting their summer team day at our Waterloo Park venue. 

“Some of the team were mad enough to join me in walking the full 26 miles of the Marriott’s Way in Norfolk to raise funds, too!” he adds. “All this support helps us to empower people in Norwich, more than 5,000 of whom currently rely on our Social Supermarket because they can’t afford enough food.”

Like last year, OneAgency’s Wellbeing Committee will plan numerous fundraising events and activities throughout 2024 so we can show our support for Mind and its incredible work in our community.
