We are delighted that our charity partner for 2021 is Pure Mental NI.
Pure Mental NI is a grassroots, youth-led organisation and was founded in August 2019 by Jay Buntin and Matthew Taylor, with the aim of improving mental health awareness and education in Northern Ireland’s schools. Since then, the Pure Mental team has grown and so has the backing they are receiving from young people, organisations, MLA’s and the interim Mental Health Champion for NI - Siobhán O’Neill; support means everything to the team at Pure Mental.
They firmly believe that young people need to have a say when it comes to their own mental health, and that their feedback and suggestions for how things can be improved are key for any future budgets and legislation, which is why they are proud to have set up committees within schools and carried out research through surveys at secondary schools. Pure Mental feel that they are helping to bridge the gap between schools, young people and those who can bring about change – the politicians and Executive Departments. Currently, they are in the development process of their biggest project to date and this will be announced by the end of January 2021!
A donation from each Tower Above product sold will go to Pure Mental NI to support their work.
We are delighted to work with them and contribute to their amazing work.
