Join with The Mintridge Foundation on ‘Giving Tuesday 2018’ to make a world of difference to your local good cause.
What is it?
Giving Tuesday is a global movement for good that you can be part of. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is fuelled by the power of social media and collaboration. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on 27 November 2018.
Giving Tuesday’s overall aim is to encourage companies and people to make a world of difference by doing good stuff. Giving Tuesday offers companies like yours the opportunity to support charitable causes and share positive stories about their involvement with one of the world’s biggest days of generosity.
The Mintridge Foundation
We are your local registered charity in Corby. Our mission is to assist young people of all ages, abilities and physical capabilities to develop confidence and resilience, and raise awareness of the importance of mental and physical wellbeing through sporting role models.
Our Ambassadors- Olympians, Paralympians and other professional sports stars from over 20 sports work with young people in schools, clubs and academies encouraging inclusive sports participation for all, disability awareness, female empowerment and recognition of mental wellbeing issues. Ambassadors provide bespoke one-on-one remote mentoring in a safeguarded environment via a bespoke App, focusing on areas such as improving sporting techniques, confidence building, psychological demands of life, dealing with pressures and coping with setbacks.
