This year a combined SD and CRF team will be taking on two separate challenges to raise money for Mind – The Mental Health Charity. A team of 15 have already successfully conquered part 1: The Thames Bridges walk, and this will be closely followed by a team of 6 completing part 2: The Lakeland 3000.
Across our team a number of us have experience or insight into the lives of people struggling with mental health issues or the impact it can have on those supporting people who are struggling with mental health issues. Mind offers advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem and in addition campaign to improve services , raise awareness and promote understanding. Mind is also a partner in Time to Change, England’s most ambitious anti-stigma campaign for mental health. If you are able to sponsor us in our walking endeavours we truly and greatly appreciate it.
