FUNDRAISING

We’re walking 15 miles to raise £15,000 for Inspire Wellbeing

Calibro Workspace Office Design and Fitout Specialists Northern Ireland - Fundraising for Inspire Wellbeing

In honour of our 15 year anniversary, we undertook a number of fundraising activities to raise funds for vital mental health support services in Northern Ireland.

This fundraiser is now closed.

In early October, two Calibro team members will be abseiling down The Europa Hotel and in early November our team will be embarking on a 15-mile walk along the scenic North Coast – all in an effort to raise £15,000 for Inspire Wellbeing, an all-island charity and social enterprise with the aim to enhance wellbeing across all aspects of people’s lives. Inspire work together with people living with mental ill health, intellectual disability, autism and addictions and provide support both in the community and workplace.

As a company, we have been guided by our mission to enhance the wellbeing of people at work for the last 15 years and want to celebrate this milestone by providing funding support for these essential services.

You can donate to the cause via our gofundme page. Calibro will be matching all donations.
All donations are tax deductible.

Why support mental health services?
Mental health problems are the single largest cause of ill health and disability in Northern Ireland. One in five adults in Northern Ireland has experienced a mental health problem, a rate 25% higher than in England.1

Prior to the pandemic, one in eight children had emotional difficulty indicating psychological distress.2
Northern Ireland also has the highest levels of maternal mental health problems in the UK.3
