My story

[p][i]Our new Head of Chaplaincy Lindsay van Dijk and her chaplaincy team are preparing to walk [/i][b][i]100 metres[/i][/b][i] for every staff member at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust ([/i][b][i]18,000 staff members[/i][/b][i] in total) to raise awareness of how important it is that we all take care of our mental and spiritual health during mental health awareness month.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]The multi-faith and belief team consisting beliefs such as Christian, Muslim and Humanist shall walk a total of [/i][b][i]1,800 km[/i][/b][i] or [/i][b][i]1,118 miles[/i][/b][i] to reflect on all the hard work staff have done throughout the last year+ for patient care and to recognise their own mental and spiritual health.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]Just to put that huge goal into perspective 1,800km is the walking distance from [/i][b][i]Sheffield to Valencia (Spain)[/i][/b][i] on the lovely mediterranean coast - certainly nice to be there in spirit![/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]To achieve this, we will need lots of effort from all of the team, a few months to get it done, and generous donations from you to keep us going.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]Thank you very, very much![/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]The team is hoping to raise funds through Sheffield Hospitals Charity (Fund 2004) to provide spiritual and mental health resources including the refurbishment our multi-belief spaces to allow staff to have another breathing space away from their day to day work and for them to take time to themselves to pause, reflect and take care of their mental and spiritual well-being. [/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]The team shall upload photo's and videos throughout our fundraising journey to show their progress![/i][/p]

The pandemic has been a real challenge to our mental and spiritual wellbeing so it's great you are raising awareness about the importance of these dimensions of our lives. Enjoy your walk to Valencia
