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.


Suicide is the UK's single biggest cause of death in men under 45.

Aged 27, Vittorio Petruzzelli lost his battle with mental health in April 2017, subsequently taking his own life leaving close family, friends and a local community devastated at the loss of a soul so loved by all.

Vittorio's story continues...

One year later Vittorio's sister Danielle Petruzzelli has teamed up with The Mentell Movement, a group of volunteers based in South Manchester who's single purpose is to keep men safe by providing free to access group meetings for any male 18+ to talk openly about mental health.

Nothing will take away the heartache felt by the loss of Vittorio, but there is an opportunity to transform the pain and suffering into a message of love and support for our fellow brothers. With your help, Danielle will bring The Mentell Movement into Vittorio's hometown of Hyde and create a free to access support group for men in the community who are suffering from anxiety and depression. So that Vittorio's loss could save the lives of many other men who are suffering in silence, but in order to achieve this we need your help...

On August 19th Danielle, friends and family of Vittorio will join group members from Mentell at Snowden for their last leg of the 3 peak challenge to raise money for The Mentell Movement.

We kindly ask you to donate and sponsor our walk so that Danielle and The Mentell Movement can continue the great work in South Manchester and build a longstanding free men's group in Hyde and future communities. Thankyou.
