My story

[p]The [url=http://www.buccleuchproperty.com/wp-buccleuch/the-buccleuch-property-challenge/]Buccleuch Property Challenge[/url] is the ultimate team building, 6-hour non stop adventure race. Set in the grounds of Drumlanrig Castle, the course has been created to include different stages including mountain biking, running, orienteering and surprise activities - previous years have seen obstacle courses, kayaking and even sumo suits.[/p][p]This year, the Challenge will raise money for Projekt 42, an Edinburgh-based social enterprise aimed at tackling poor mental health through an innovative programme of health and wellbeing services. Currently based in a temporary facility in Newkirkgate Shopping Centre, Leith, the community gym and wellbeing centre offers fitness classes, mindfulness activities, life coaching, nutrition workshops and more, designed to be accessible for all.[/p][p]The facility was devised by charity founder, Sara Hawkins, after she was inspired by her own mental health journey. In 2012, she was diagnosed with PTSD, and unable to access the necessary support quickly, her condition spiraled. After months of being withdrawn, she was gifted a gym membership and through this, she began to see a dramatic improvement in her mental wellbeing. [/p][p]Buccleuch Property was approached by Sara to see if we could help her to deliver her vision of creating a new purpose built facility on a site she had secured on Halmyre Street, Leith. We have put together a pro-bono task force of local building experts, engineers, and architects offering advice and assistance.[/p][p]We are delighted to be able to support Projekt 42 through fundraising efforts at our annual Challenge. We are inspired by Sara and her team's determination to provide such a vital service to their community and the importance of discussing mental health.[/p][p]From [b]£6.50[/b] for a new yoga block, [b]£12.99 [/b]for boxing gloves and [b]£15[/b] for a yoga mat, through to [b]£120[/b] for a new step box and [b]£250[/b] for a barbell set, every penny donated will help Projekt 42 improve its facilities for existing and future users:[/p][p][b]£20[/b] would pay for someone to receive one hour of one-to-one life coaching, or person-centred counselling[/p][p][b]£25[/b] is the equivalent of a monthly membership, allowing someone to access up to 67 hours of fitness, yoga and meditation. With one membership gifted for every paid-for membership, you’ll be helping two people in need[/p][p]It’s not just adults who benefit from Projekt 42, a donation of [b]£35[/b] will enable the charity to deliver a 1.5-hour family mindfulness and yoga workshop for adults and children[/p][p][b]£65[/b] would pay for a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy counsellor to lead a two-hour workshop on positive behavioural patterns and how to overcome negative thinking[/p][p]Feeling generous? A donation of[b] £270[/b] would pay for someone in need to access over 3,000 hours of fitness, yoga and meditation a year[/p][p]We are extremely grateful for any donations received towards this fantastic cause, thank you![/p][p][br][/p]
