Get Outside for The Harbour

Can you get outside with colleagues to help raise vital funds for our emergency appeal?

The Harbour is a small charity with a huge vision – that people facing death, dying and bereavement have a safe space to talk and be listened to.

Our charity is needed now more than ever before. As Bristol reels from the impact of the pandemic, we are providing specialist counselling to adults with a life-threatening illness, those who are close to someone with a life-threatening illness, and people who have been bereaved due to illness.

Despite the increased demand, our service is under threat. We urgently need money to help us continue offering support in the community.

This is where you come in…

We are asking businesses in Bristol to join up with colleagues and get outside for The Harbour in the lead up to Mental Health Awareness Week; connecting with each other whilst also raising money for our small but vital charity.

It all started when our team was asked to say what would improve their wellbeing at work. Many highlighted missing the connection with colleagues; having worked remotely for over a year, some of our team had not even met face-to-face. Since then, we have been organising a monthly walk around the harbourside, creating time and space for our team to catch up and check in. This has been so helpful for our team’s wellbeing and for helping us to feel connected both to each other and to the organisation.

We want to invite you to do the same with your colleagues. It is all the more important following these times of remote working to create these connections and to allow space for mental wellbeing in the workplace.
