Good thinking

Say hello to Mind and SAMH (Scottish Action for Mental Health), our latest charity partners

Working across England, Wales and Scotland, these charities are making mental health a top priority.

They won't stop until everyone with a mental health problem gets the right support and respect. And we want to do our bit to help.

What we're doing

Money is on everyone's minds more than ever right now. But worrying about finances isn't good for anyone's mental health.

That's why we're so excited that our colleagues voted for Virgin Money to team up with Mind and SAMH. From fundraising to more practical things like volunteering, we'll do whatever we can to help.

Donation sensations

We raised a whopping £1.5m for our last charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support. And over the next few years we're hoping to make a big difference to Mind and SAMH too. Watch this space!
