My story

[p]I'm taking on this incredible challenge in support of Mind, the mental health charity. I have a huge fundraising target to reach so thank you for considering donating! [/p][p]This challenge will see me walking for 5-8 hours a day for four days, camping overnight and reaching peaks of 2,400 meters in the Transylvanian Alps with a group of people I’ve never met. [/p][p]For someone who has never travelled to another country alone, finds it challenging to feel comfortable with new people straight away and has a problem with heights, this is going to be interesting! [/p][p]I wanted a challenge that would push my limits and give me something to be proud of, as well as creating an opportunity to raise money for (and awareness of!!) a charity that offers information and support for people experiencing mental health issues. [/p][p]Mental health has always been important to me, both in my work and personal life. I have my own experiences of anxiety and depression, as do many of the people I know. This challenge gives me an opportunity to raise money and awareness whilst heading off on an amazing adventure! [/p][p][b]Who are Mind?[/b][/p][p]Mind are a mental health charity. They believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. [/p][p]They provide [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/]advice and support[/url] to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/news-campaigns/campaigns/]campaign[/url] to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.[/p][p]I'm raising funds to support the important work Mind does and to allow them to continue to be there for everyone who needs them. Please donate if you can.[/p][p]This is what your donation could do:[/p][p][b]£10[/b] could allow Mind to send essential information booklets about mental health to 40 people.[/p][p][b]£40[/b] could pay for 28 people to campaign for change on Mind’s behalf.[/p][p][b]£70[/b] could keep Mind’s online community, Elefriends, open and safe for two hours. [/p][p][b]£120[/b] could offer a lifeline to eight people in desperate need of support from Mind’s legal line.[/p][p][b]£200[/b] could help 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]Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for donating. Your support is hugely appreciated.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mind. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p]
