My story

[p]On Saturday 7 September, David and Susanna will be taking part in the Thames Path Challenge. The full route is 100km, but we're not sure we're ready for that, so we'll be walking 50k (that's just over 31 miles) from Putney to Runnymede. We've done the Moonwalk a few times before (some of you will still be scarred from the memory of David's decorated bra), but that was a while ago, and we're definitely out of practice, so this will be a challenge.[/p][p]We've committed to raising £400 each for Mind, the mental health charity. Many of you will know that Susanna deals with anxiety, and that walking is one of the activities that helps her (and David!) to handle it. Mind is also one of Susanna's office charities this year.[/p][p]We know we ask you for sponsorship regularly, and will be making a donation ourselves to start things off. If anyone feels able to donate, it's a great cause.[/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]
