Story

After becoming personally affected by mental health and receiving little support I decided to do something about it to help others in our local community. Through different seminars and mental health awareness days I have met a lot of people from mental health charities and other sufferers. 90%+ of the sufferers that have shared their story with me have had a negative experience of local services.

My aim is to raise as much money as possible to allow our group to run regular drop in sessions. Ranging from a simple coffee and a chat to support sufferers and their supporting family/ friends, but to also host events that educate our local community. And provide those in need of support somewhere local to turn.

We currently have backing from our local mayor Terry Clements, who has helped support and get us off the ground.

We aim to run art therapy groups within the town.

We currently provide a service for depression, anxiety, post natal depression, complex post traumatic stress, borderline personality disorder, dementia, OCD, fibro. And much more.

Our age range is huge, from those studying at college, to those that are retired. It really can affect anybody at any stage in their life.

This group is so needed throughout Bury, I hope you are never unfortunate enough to need it, but unfortunately so many do. Please help show them they have somewhere to turn.

We are now well on our way to becoming a registered suffolk charity.

So being as passionate and as nuts as I am, little old me is saddling up (I haven't ridden a bike for 2years+!) and taking part in a 70 MILE ride to help raise money for such a good cause!

We rely solely on donation and fund raising, so please even if you can spare a penny, I would be eternally grateful.

Lift The Cloud

Please help me to lower our local suicide rate, every life counts.

    So tonight was another training night in preparation for my 70 mile bike ride. Just under 16 miles done tonight in the sunshine. Despite an ignorant driver knocking me into stinging nettles it was a great ride! Stopped off at nowton park, rode around my old housing estate on morton hall and enjoyed the country side views.
