raised of £5,000 target by 92 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,435 to do more to help relieve stress and distress in Cornwall, save lives and reduce harms associated with mental health problems.

    Funded on Wednesday, 3rd July 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I’m just a bloke and a family man with a pair of legs who wants to to raise awareness for mental health in the communities of Cornwall. I’m not known as athletic or sporty in any shape or form by those that know me!

    Though I have for the last 25 years experienced my own mental health issues. Talking about how you feel can be difficult and some of us can, however the majority seem to find this very overwhelming. In the last year alone, just in the community I live in (Camborne/Redruth), I have heard or known of at least 12 people taking their own lives! This walk is an opportunity to touch communities and people’s lives, to restate the importance of looking out for each other and to see people beyond our surfaces. Life in its simplicity is about people, are we really always aware of each other?

    Please support Portheden and myself in May on the walk whether that be a donation, joining me on my walk or a bit of banter on social media. It can seem so little though mean so much.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
