DoorCo goes all out for Mental Health Month

May marked Mental Health Month in DoorCo’s 2024 wellbeing calendar, and the composite door market leader dedicated itself to promoting healthy minds, raising awareness, and fundraising.

Marketing Manager Ellie Pool said: “From the very beginning of the month we embraced the ‘Make a Moment for Movement’ theme of Mental Health Awareness Week with enthusiasm. To support our colleagues, Mark Towers and Lucy Daniels, who are set to climb Kilimanjaro for Kelly’s Heroes, the whole DoorCo team undertook the challenge of walking 100,000 steps each over the month.

“Weekly updates on the steps leader board kept everyone motivated, and the challengers quickly smashed through their targets, with one team member achieving 100,000 steps within the first five days! Collectively, we amassed an impressive 6.5 million steps throughout May, equivalent to scaling Kilimanjaro 65 times.”

“The team’s dedication and commitment to the 100,000-step challenge has been a real inspiration to see,” said Head of HR Dek Wright. “It’s been great to see everyone going out for walks on their lunch breaks and taking time to get moving to help their mental and physical health.”

Ellie continued: “In true DoorCo spirit, the efforts didn’t stop at the step challenge. On 16th May, we all donned our best green attire for Wear It Green Day in support of Mental Health Awareness. The standout prize went to Freya from customer services, who was adorned in green from head to toe.

“To wrap up a successful month, we hosted a Friday Fundraiser on 31st May to support Mark and Lucy’s cause. Everyone made donations to enjoy a pick and mix treat, wrote messages of encouragement for Mark and Lucy to read during their trek, and spread positivity by writing uplifting mental health messages on a pink door in DoorCo’s reception window.

“During the day, the step challenge was also concluded with prizes awarded to the top three steppers and the individual who logged the most steps on the final day. The event raised a commendable £306.50 towards the Kilimanjaro goal for Kelly’s Heroes, while also significantly enhancing participants’ physical and mental well-being.”
