Pitched roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles is again showing its support for Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from May 15 to 20 2023.
Stress, anxiety, and depression make up one-fifth of work-related illnesses, and it costs up to £100 billion annually. Construction workers are six times more likely to die from suicide, than falling from a height at work.
Some of the team at Russell Roof Tiles will be taking part in a corporate 5 a side football tournament at Burton Albion Football Club and are donating £1,000 (raised at the event) to local mental health charity, Burton and District Mind.
Russell Roof Tiles is a long-term supporter of Burton Albion as well as Odisha FC, an Indian professional football club based in Bhubaneswar, an eastern Indian state on the Bay of Bengal.
The RRT team taking part in the friendly fundraising football tournament include Managing Director, Andrew Hayward, Paul McLoughlin, Ross Hayward, Michael Palmer, James Pendleton, John Dervey, Martin Clarke, Nathan Gould, Luke Bacon and Daniel Hancox.
Russell Roof Tiles launched its Mental Health Programme last year and is dedicated to supporting mental health and wellbeing.
Hayward said: “We take the health and wellbeing of our staff very seriously and are pleased that we’re also able to donate to Mind during Mental Health Awareness Week from the game at Burton Albion. There shouldn’t be a stigma attached to mental health, which is why we are fundraising for such an incredible charity, and also have support in place within the company to support anyone who feels they may need it.”
