The 9th October marked world mental health day in 2021, with many charities fundraising in support of mental health awareness. In a lot of instances bad mental health can cause, or be caused by, deprivation of essential needs such as access to clean, hot water, food for the day, or a bed for the night. That’s why Norton Housing and Support of Leicester, UK began founded their charity to help people with disabilities or mental health needs. They also joined in the fundraising with their very own #RunforNorton campaign.

EverythingBranded Donates Sweatbands to RunforNorton
Norton Housing and Support asked their regular supporters and the public alike to run or walk their #RunforNorton 5k on October 9th, World Mental Health Day. Over 15 people came together to participate in the 5k last Sunday in Victoria Park. Although they have been around some 35years, they had never done an event like this before. Hopefully it managed to raise their profile and awareness in the local area. They reached out to us to see if we could donate a gift for the supporters. We were happy to help and gifted them with personalised sweat bands to give to all the participants in the 5K. They appreciated the gesture and thought it was the perfect give-away at the fundraiser.
