    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.

      WELL DONE AND THANK YOU STUART! A little update from Stuart this morning "Yesterday was as amazing...The run went very well, with my official finish time of 4:03:32 nearly half an hour faster than anything I'd even dreamt of...I have been overwhelmed by all the donations received, and thank each and every person for their generosity. Yesterday was particularly poignant, as I was not only raising money for a good cause, but was also running in memory of a good friend, who sadly took his own life earlier in the week."

      A huge thank you to everyone who has donated! Stuart has exceeded his £500 target!!! Stuart sent us an update: "So the big day is getting scarily close now - just under 4 weeks to go. This weekend I managed to fit running a 10km event in as one of my training runs, which was really good. Thanks to the training done so far, I managed to knock 3 minutes off my personal best time, which I was very happy about. It was also a good boost mentally, as it proved all the training is paying off."

      Wow 93% raised already! Thanks for supporting Stuart and our service! Stuart sent us his latest update: "Time's ticking away now, and the big day is getting ever closer. I've now covered over 250 miles since starting the training, including my longest ever run of just over 18 miles last Friday morning. This was a double shock, as I had to go out at 5am to avoid the building heat during the day. I'll not miss these runs after the training has finished :)"
