Nikki's Story:

Nikki is the inspiration behind the Big Swim! She has taken on 3 swimming challenges so far for Healthy Minds, increasing the distance each time. Last year, Nikki & Kath swam an incredible 2,500 meters to raise money for our work.

Here's what Nikki had to say:

"Healthy Minds has completely turned my life around. I have always loved swimming and even more so now, as ill health and mobility issues have taken their toll. Swimming gives me freedom of movement and is great for my mental health.

Healthy Minds have been a life changer and now I want to give something back. I want to try and raise some funds for this special and worthy charity. I can't walk far, and I definitely can't run a marathon, but what I can do is challenge myself to a swim!"

About the charity

We are Calderdale's local mental health charity, led by people who have personal experience of emotional distress. With kindness and respect, together we create and provide opportunities for people to understand and build on their strengths to better achieve what they want from their lives.
