    Story

    Eight Bells for Mental Health (Eight Bells) is a member led organisation which runs a Drop-in service in a safe and welcoming environment twice a week offering support, advice and friendship to anyone affected by mental health issues in the Newbury areas. The key priorities are to reduce social isolation, provide advocacy and peer support for individuals involved.

    Eight Bells provides space where members are able to socialise with other people who have similar experiences than them, but without the label of clinical diagnosis attached to them. This is an environment where members are encouraged to be themselves and make friends. The charity also organises a range of activities that support the drop in including weekly art sessions, a member run craft group as well as organised trips.

    Many members have requested that the drop in be available more often. This has been spoken of for many years and something that the trustees would like to implement in 2018, so would be looking for funding to support the running costs of the drop in for three days a week.

      So, Mike, Hannah and James all ran the 10K yesterday in a mixture of sunshine and heavy rain showers. Hannah was the 3rd best placed female runner (I know, right?Amazing!) and deservedly took her place on the podium at the end. Mike and James did also finish, (confirmed by the race officials!) which is an achievement in itself. A huge thank you to everyone for your support and incredibly generous donations - a whopping £790 has been raised so far which translates into £1580 for the Eight Bells charity. A stunning effort all round!

      We've done it! Or more accurately YOU'VE done it. We've still got to actually run, so I'm told! But don't worry, Mike is on a special training programme :) Thank you so very much for your kind donations and remember, whatever we raise will be 'match funded'. Hurrah!
