    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 charity.

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

    Story

    The concept of ManHealth came out of a relationship between two men Michael and Paul. Both were suffering with depression. Depression was tearing their lives apart. Both men had been unable to discuss their condition with family or medical professionals and had closed themselves off from the world. Through regular daily meetings, telephone communications and then regular exercise Michael and Paul realised that the sharing of feelings and emotions and discussion of the issues around mental health made them feel better within themselves. The encouragement and comradery helped them on the road to getting well. This is how the idea of ManHealth was first discussed and then further developed into a Community Interest Company.
    We know that peer support offered by someone who has experience of depression can help men. They will open up and discuss their issues around depression and start their path to recovery. It is not an easy thing to acknowledge that depression is tearing your life apart, and it takes strength to admit it and seek help. Depression is not a weakness; it affects 1 in 4 men and leads to many men taking their own lives.
    ●Suicides (76%) are by men and suicide is the biggest cause of death for men under 35.
    ●Over three quarters of people who kill themselves are men.
    ●73% of adults who ‘go missing’ are men.
    We are proud to be supporting such a worthy cause and helping to end the stigma surrounding Mental Health and Depression. We will be completing "Miles for ManHealth" The Yorkshire Three Peaks on Sunday 23rd September 2018.
    The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, and we will be completing the walk within 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 25 miles (40.2km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent.
    All Donations are very much appreciated.
    Wish us luck
