My story

[p]Every year, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I have struggled with my mental health at times and I think it’s so important to support the hundreds of thousands of people struggling every day. Mind is an incredible charity that is a direct helpline for those in need of support. [/p][p][br][/p][p]The Icarus Trust is a charity where I volunteer as a ‘family friend’ to provide support to those suffering from addiction or obsessive behaviours, and to families who are affected by the addiction of a loved one, whether that’s alcohol, gambling, eating disorders or something else entirely. I have seen first hand the work that this charity has done for many family friends and it’s a cause very close to my heart. [/p][p][br][/p][p]With this in mind, on 26th April 2020 I will be tackling my most grueling challenge to date and intend to run the London Marathon – much to the astonishment of my family! Many of my friends will already know that I am not the most keen runner of the bunch, so to say this is a challenge would be the understatement of the year![/p][p][br][/p][p]So here’s to training from couch to marathon, and what better way to do it than by raising money for great charities along the way! [/p][p][br][/p][p]Please find it in your heart and (in sympathy for my legs) sling a fiver in my direction and help support all those who struggle every day in silence. It’s time to start talking! [/p][p][br][/p][p]In memory of Hamish Hardie.[/p]
