My story

[p]Words That Carry On is a fund dedicated to investing in mental health research. It is in memory of our friend Lindsay Riddoch, an ardent advocate for better mental health services who was intent on ensuring people who lived with mental health problems had their voices are heard. Lindsay ended her life and battle with mental health issues December 2017 just before her 25th Birthday. [/p][p]We are her family and friends, and have decided to carry on Lindsay’s work. We looked for inspiration in one of her poems to help us name the fund and focus our work.[/p][p][i]Are these words all we really have[/i][/p][p][i]these half thrown vibrations of those chords in our throat[/i][/p][p][i]these squiggles and shapes so imbued with meaning[/i][/p][p][i]that to express more than a simple sound is too much[/i][/p][p][i]Maybe when we die it is our [/i][b][i]words that carry on[/i][/b][/p][p][i]those lingering sentences and half finished thoughts[/i][/p][p][i]carried in the ears, in the hearts, of those to whom they were spoken. [/i][/p][p] [/p][p]Every penny donated to Words That Carry On – Lindsay’s Fund, will be used to support mental health research. The fund is being managed by the McPin Foundation, a charity dedicated to championing the voices of people directly affected by mental health problems within research. [/p][p]Thank you for visiting our fundraising page and we are grateful for any donation you are able to give. The figure for the ‘Total raised so far’ above includes both money donated via the Virgin Money platform and that collected during other fundraising activities (‘Raised offline’).[/p][p]If you would like to know more about our plans please do sign up to receive the Words That Carry On newsletter through our website.
