Charity partnership with Mendy & Watt raises a smile

The team from Mendy & Watt

Local charity Smile Group has teamed up with Cheshire-based legal, financial and property company, Mendy & Watt who are showing their support for families affected by perinatal mental health challenges.

Based in Holmes Chapel, Mendy & Watt is a family-run company offering comprehensive estate planning and financial advisory services to both private clients and businesses. The company also provides a boutique service for residential property sales and lettings through its sister company Open House Estate Agents East Cheshire.

Estate planner Wendy Heyes was keen to get behind Smile after getting to know the charity through local business network, BNI, and the charity is also supporting a partner of a colleague within the business.

Smile provides a combination of peer support, 1-1 talk therapy and 1-1 support for parents in Cheshire East experiencing pre and postnatal anxiety and depression.

There are strong synergies between the organisations as Mendy & Watt build lifelong relationships, supporting families and businesses through both good and sad times in life.

The company is supporting Smile group through the donation of skills, money, time and energy to raise awareness of their valuable community-based work.

Commenting on the partnership, Wendy Heyes said: “The more we learn about their amazing work, the more we wanted to help. Knowing a member of our team’s family was receiving support has also hit home how important their support services are.”

Cofounder of Smile Group, Ruth Williams, added: “We’re thrilled to be partnered with Mendy & Watt as a local business with aligned values. They are a great team and their culture and outlook show how much they value giving back to their local community and building valuable relationships.”
