We decided to use Shrove Tuesday as a perfect excuse to both stuff our faces with delicious pancakes and raise money for the excellent mental health charity Mind. Every year one in four people will experience a mental health problem and Mind help by providing advice and support. They also campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental illness. With the help of my glamorous assistants we were able to cook enough pancakes to feed the hungry hordes in the Bristol office and between the deep pockets of our colleagues and Softwire’s generous charity matching we raised over £200, all of which will go to supporting the invaluable work that Mind do. Thank you to all of you who came and ate and particular thanks for my wonderful helpers Emily, Olly and Thea without whom I would not have managed.
