Move for Nottinghamshire Mind was our virtual challenge with the aim of getting our communities working together, moving for better mental health and raising awareness of the work of Nottinghamshire Mind.
It was a month long challenge, that took place in May 2021.
People set their self a distance challenge – walking, running, swimming, skipping, cycling space-hopping etc.
It’s well documented that exercise plays a huge part in maintaining positive mental health. By joining Move for Nottinghamshire Mind, they improved their own physical and mental wellbeing while providing vital funds to help us continue our work, supporting the mental health of people in our communities.
A small group of primary schools, supported by the Sherwood Forest Education Partnership, were invited to design our medal. We are pleased to say that the design by Jared from Forest View Academy in Ollerton was chosen along with elements of design from Freya and Luke, also from Forest View Academy
The medals were made out of wood by the Dukeries Community Workshop in Ollerton. The workshop has been a long-standing partner of Nottinghamshire Mind, supporting our service users by running woodworking and fused glass courses. Producing the medals will test out the abilities of their newly built CNC router. We was proud to have them on board.
The ribbon for the medals was printed by a small Nottinghamshire business and was sewn by members of community craft groups and WIs.
Our Nottinghamshire Mind branded items were supplied and printed by Wrigleprint, an independent business owned and run by Scott Wrigley in Balderton.
Huthwaite based CCM Group supported us with the design and production of our challenge welcome pack.
