The Benevolent is Inviting Bartenders to their ‘Minds Matter’ Mental Health Workshops

0001

Following the grant awarded to the charity by the Tales of the Cocktail Foundation in July 2019, The Benevolent is pleased to invite bartenders and hospitality workers to their ‘Minds Matter’ mental health workshops.

The purpose of ‘Minds Matter’ is to create a Benevolent certified Mental Health Awareness course that encourages bartenders to thrive by embracing self-care, acquiring knowledge of mental health and learning how to feel confident to ask for help when needed.

During the workshops, attendees will learn about mental health and everyday techniques to build resilience, and they will leave knowing what to do if life throws a cocktail of problems at them.

The first ‘Minds Matter’ session will be held on 7th November at Tanner & Co. in London, and it’s the first of three workshops that will be organised by the drinks industry charity over 2019 and 2020 in different cities of the UK. Further communications about the next workshops will be provided in due course.

The Benevolent’s ‘Minds matter’ workshops are free of charge, however The Benevolent can only accommodate 100 bartenders per session. You can sign up to the London’s session by clicking HERE.

#BenevolentColours Launched By The Drinks Industry Charity

#benevolentcolours 8

#benevolentcolours is a new campaign by the drinks trade charity, The Benevolent, to raise awareness of the ‘It could be me’ campaign aimed at getting as many members of the drinks industry to sign up to donate £5 a month.

On May 21st 2019 the trade is invited to dress up in either red, white or rosé (or a mix of all three) at The London Wine Fair in Olympia to show support for the campaign. For those attending The London Wine Fair, The Benevolent will be on stand E60 alongside the WSTA and will have a sign-up station together with a photo booth nearby on stand G61 complete with red, white and rosé coloured accessories to capture the spirit of the day.

The campaign is being brought to life through a unique PR collaboration of Dillon Morrall, emma wellings pr, Limm Communications, Phipps Relations and R&R Teamwork. Michael Saunders, Chairman and Chris Porter, CEO of The Benevolent who brought the group together said, “We wanted to get the best creative minds round the table to help to raise awareness of all the great work that the Charity is involved with. Top of the agenda was creating awareness of the ‘It could be me’ campaign and encouraging individuals to sign up to donate a small amount every month. The Charity is under constant pressure as it delivers financial support to those in need and regular donations are vital to the success of our work.”

Companies are encouraged to join the colourful community vibe and get staff involved in dressing up and signing up to the campaign. For every picture posted on Instagram, Twitter of Facebook #benevolentcolours @drinkscharityuk, the PR collaboration will donate £1 to The Benevolent.
