My story

[p]On 9th July, I carried the Olympic Torch through Kidlington.  I was nominated for the work that I have done in fundraising over the last three years for Mind, the mental health charity, motivated by the loss of a close childhood friend, Emily, in 2006.[/p][p]Carrying the torch was an incredible experience!  I am trying to use the occasion to promote the work that Mind do and also raise further funds for the charity.  I am currently auctioning my Olympic Torch on ebay and intend to also auction my uniform in due course.  My husband and I have been taking the torch out and about, asking for donations in return for photo opportunities.  A few people have asked about donating something without being able to get along to see the torch, so this page is for you!  I'll be sending my money in separately but will keep everyone informed of the total.[/p][p]Mind are a fantastic charity, doing wonderful work to support those with mental health difficulties as well as promoting good mental health in the UK.  The money I raise could be used to help fund the Mind Infoline which receives 40,000 calls a year from people seeking support or advice.  1 in 4 people in the UK will suffer a mental health problem each year - if it's not you, it's likely to be someone you know.[/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
