My story

[p]Hi all. Thank you for visiting my page. I’m running the London Marathon on 28th April 2019. There’s a few reasons I’ve chosen to run for Mind. Firstly I will be running in memory of 2 people who suffered from mental illness and are sadly no longer with us. The first is my Auntie Christine, who we lost in 2004. She was a huge part of my growing up and we miss her very much. The second is a friend and work colleague, Alex, who passed away earlier this year. Alex ran the London Marathon in 2018 for Mind and I was so proud of him.[/p][p]In addition to running in memory of Christine and Alex, I am also running to support the people in my life (and there are many of them) who suffer from any form of mental illness. Depression, anxiety etc can and does affect anyone at any time and it’s really important that everyone has the support they need and are able to talk openly about it. Mind provides this essential help.[/p][p]Please help me raise as much money as possible! Thank you so much for your support. [/p][p]————————————————————————————[/p][p]Who are Mind?.[/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We're here for you. Today.

[/p][p][b]£120[/b] could offer a lifeline to eight people in desperate need of support from our Mind legal line.[/p][p][b]£200[/b] could help us keep the Mind Infoline open for 1 hour, helping 35 people.[/p][p][b]£300[/b] could support a young person bereaved by suicide to access 1:1 and group support. [/p][p][b]£550[/b] could provide five people struggling with their mental health a place in a 10-week wellbeing group with team sports and cookery.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mind.
