Story

Stuart is running The London Marathon to help raise money for The Reach!

Stuart McCann has kindly decided to raise money for The Reach by running The London Marathon! We could not be more pleased that he chose us!

Stuart said, "Over the years, I've seen family and friends suffer with their mental health to varying degrees. Although help is out there, it can often be months away from when it's needed. The Reach Mens Centre is a local organisation offering accessible help to anyone in need, and is a very worthy cause for any funds raised."

Good luck with your training Stuart!

About The Reach

The Reach was launched as a community interest company in 2017 with the aim to fill the gap in mental health support for men in Sefton. Through conversations with men in the area we found that there was a demand for an informal drop-in service where men could socialise with others and receive signposting to relevant services.

Over the past 5 years we have provided a range of services aimed at reducing isolation and improving the mental health of men in the area. We currently run support groups where men can meet to share experiences, play pool and chat. They can also receive support from our guest speakers, obtain signposting to other local services, or gain skills through various courses. We also provide support through our one-to-one counselling service.

Our service was steadily growing, but the global pandemic saw a substantial increase in demand for both counselling and drop-in support leading to us expand. We made the decision to move from our local neighbourhood centre to our own premises to offer more time and flexibility to those needing help. We are now based in Bootle Strand Shopping Centre.

    Stuart's training is going well, especially in this heat!! He sent us this update yesterday: "Just to let you know it's less than 80 days to go until the big day (which seems to be approaching very quickly). I've just got week 5 completed, and have now totalled over 100 miles since my official training began 5 weeks ago. The week ahead is the start of some of the harder training sessions, which introduce faster runs to work on stamina. These will be done before I go to work in the morning to avoid the soaring temperatures." Thanks Stuart!

    Thanks for all the donations so far! Stuart sent us this update this morning: "Yesterday I completed week 3 of the training plan (just another 13 weeks to go). Yesterday's run was a 9 1/2 mile run in the sunshine through Ainsdale Pinewoods & onto the beach, lasting a total of 90 minutes. (Since starting the training, I've covered a total of nearly 64 miles, and run for over 9 & half hours)" Amazing work Stuart! Well done!
