Ordnance Survey charity of the year

Thursday, 12 May 2016

We are delighted to announce that Ordnance Survey have named Solent Mind as their chosen charity of the year.

Each year everyone at Ordnance Survey (OS) has the chance to nominate, and then vote for, a corporate charity which the organisation will support for the next 12 months. This year staff at OS have selected Solent Mind as the corporate charity, and fundraising is already underway.

Richard Barritt, Solent Mind’s CEO, comments: “We are delighted that Ordnance Survey staff have selected Solent Mind as their charity of the year. Each year, we support over 12,000 people across Hampshire with mental health issues. Ordnance Survey’s support means we can reach more people, answer more calls, provide more information, advice and guidance, and carry on speaking out for everyone affected by mental health problems.”

Nigel Clifford, Ordnance Survey's CEO, added: “The OS corporate charity means a lot to all of us at OS and I am constantly amazed at the levels of fundraising which take place. Solent Mind provides valuable and essential services to people facing mental health problems and I am delighted that we will be supporting them over the next 12 months.”
