My story

[p]This August, Launceston based designer Jo Downs and her brother Sam will tandem cycle 874 miles in two weeks from John O’Groats to Lands End to raise funds for the Invictus Trust. The Invictus Trust is a Cornwall based charity which aims to support and offer services to local teenagers suffering from poor mental health and associated issues. The trust was established by the Cowburn family in 2010 in memory of their son and brother Ben, who took his own life aged just 18 after a short period of mental illness. Led and driven by young people, the trust aims to raise awareness of teenage mental health issues through events, campaigns and social media, and by giving talks in schools about adolescent mental wellbeing. [/p][p]Jo Downs says: “I have been directly involved with teenagers with mental health issues, which is how the Invictus Trust and its brilliant work came to my attention. In addition, Sam and I both have teenage children of our own, and like all parents, we are aware of the importance of good mental health at this age, and throughout adulthood. We are pleased to be able to support the Invictus Trust, and are really looking forward to the challenge, and to raising essential funds for adolescent mental health support in Cornwall”. #JDJOGLE[/p]
