On Sunday 19th November, Stateside Foods celebrated International Men’s Day by raising awareness of Men’s Health throughout the month of November.
We ran a selection of wellbeing courses for our night shift colleagues to engage in which were delivered by Gill from Health Assured on Mental Health and Stress Awareness. These sessions were friendly and informative and well received by our colleagues who attended.
We also held a raffle to raise money and awareness for Andy’s Man Club. This year’s theme for International Men’s Day was #zeromalesuicide which is why we chose to raise money for this charity. Andy’s Man Club are a men’s suicide prevention charity, offering free-to-attend peer-to-peer support groups across the United Kingdom and online. They want to end the stigma surrounding men’s mental health and help men through the power of conversation.
We drew the raffle on Friday 1st December and our colleague’s generosity helped to raise an amazing £378 for Andy’s Man Club!
