My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page. I am running the London Marathon on 26th April 2020. I'm taking on this incredible challenge and fundraising in support of Mind. [/p][p]It has been an aspiration of mine for several years to run in the London Marathon and this is the perfect opportunity to raise money and awareness for a charity that supports issues so close to many of us. Each year one in four people will suffer a mental health problem. Mind are there to provide supportive and reliable information in time of need.[/p][p]As a former Royal Navy Medical Assistant, my husband currently serving in the Royal Marines and meeting whilst deployed in Afghanistan, our exposure to mental health both on a personal and professional level has had a huge impact on us as a family. Others who face difficult times are not always as fortunate as we are to feel that they are able to talk to family or friends and therefore can struggle through these dark times alone. Mind can and do help change this.[/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. Now. Whether you're stressed, depressed or in crisis. We'll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.[/p][p]We provide [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/]advice and support[/url] to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/news-campaigns/campaigns/]campaign[/url] to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.[/p][p]Watch this short video to find out more?[/p][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxHTZRwXX8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxHTZRwXX8[/url][/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 us 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 our behalf.[/p][p][b]£70[/b] could keep our 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 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]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. [/p][p]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]
