Mental health charity Dorset Mind has received a donation of more than £3,500 from Douch Family Funeral Directors.

Nick Douch, managing director said, “Our staff really got behind the fundraising. We have also made use of the charity’s services by putting our staff through mental health awareness training that also covered trauma and peer support. It was hugely beneficial and useful and means our staff know what signs to look out for and what to do.

“We’d encourage all businesses to consider training their workforces. We have already begun raising money for this year’s charity, Dementia Friends.”

Dee Swinton, Dorset Mind’s income generation and marketing manager, said, “We’ve grown incredibly over this last year, which can be attributed to our work with local forward-thinking organisations such as Douch Family Funeral Directors.

“Not only were we their charity of the year which has obvious financial benefits, but we were able to work with their team and raise mental health awareness in a profession that can be very challenging.”
