Veolia Environmental Services

Our two year partnership with Veolia Environmental Services (their first ever Charity Of The Year) raised over £100,000 and engaged over 20% of their workforce. 

Staff up and down the country took part in Mind’s major fundraising events, including the Three Peaks Challenge and London to Paris bike ride. 

Veolia's HR Director at the Royal Parks half marathon

Lloyd Sutton, Veolia’s Head of Procurement, ran six half marathons in just six weeks for Mind.  Here he talks about Veolia’s support for Mind, having just completed the Royal Parks Half Marathon.

Locally staff got behind the cause; jumping out of planes dressed as smurfs, shaving off their luscious locks or spending a full day (including their journey to and from work) in their pyjamas. 

Veolia Environmental Services' Charity Champion Kelly Booth, said  “Mind is a charity that is very close to my heart as a close family member has bipolar disorder. I raised over £1,000 by organising a charity gig, cake stalls and dressed our site operatives as Singing Santas, which made local TV!  It was an absolute pleasure fundraising for Mind; I found the whole experience enjoyable and rewarding.”

We also matched over 300 employees to volunteering opportunities at Mind shops, Ecomind projects and local Minds (link to volunteering page) and worked closely with Veolia's Human Resources and Learning & Development teams to provide mental health awareness training and consultancy (link to training pgs). 

Jean-Dominique Mallet, Chief Executive of Veolia Environmental Services (UK) plc, said: "We chose Mind as our company charity of the year as we feel that they campaign for a great cause. Mind also share some of our core values such as improving and investing in local communities and we are proud to support the charities commitment to creating a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all."
