Simplyhealth will be the lead sponsor for Samaritans new fundraising day, Feel Good Friday.
With the aim of encouraging staff fundraising in the workplace, the first ever Feel Good Friday will take place on Friday 3 February 2012. All activities are feel good themed and include wearing slippers for the day, hosting a comedy night and taking part in feel-good challenges, in return for a donation to Samaritans.
The vital funds raised through Simplyhealth's sponsorship of Feel Good Friday, will help Samaritans to answer thousands more calls from people who might not have anywhere else to turn. The charity answers a call every five seconds and in order to maintain a 24/7 service it needs to raise over £10 million each year.
Mark Day from Simplyhealth says, "Feel Good Friday is a fantastic idea and is all about doing something fun and that makes you feel good. We hope that Feel Good Friday shows people the value of taking time out, whilst at the same time helping to raise money for a great cause."
