We challenge attitudes on mental health to help anyone affected by mental illness


Hi everyone!

Meet Alba, she's recently turned 8 and since March 2021 has been on a mission to raise awareness for mental health and charities supporting it. If you know anything of Alba you'll know her reasons but for those that don't, she's doing it for her daddy and those just like him. You see from 3 months old Alba was visiting him in psychiatric hospitals whilst he did all he could to get well enough to be home. They did bedtimes via facetime, supervised visits and Christmas in family rooms on the wards of big hospitals. However, that is her hero. And she wants to do all she can to change the way people see and talk about mental health.

She's walked 100s of miles, 100s of 1000s of steps, she's walked from Castleford to Scarborough and so much in such a short amount of time raising so much awareness and money for lots of charities.

And now she's planning her 10th. September 12th Alba will arrive in Redcar and walk over to the lighthouse where her 123 mile route begins! Walking all the way down to Spurn Point. She's doing it in only 7 days.

She'll be rocking her yellow croc wellies, bright odd socks and huge smile. You may spot her running, dancing, singing, making sandcastles and will happily wave and chat to anyone on route. 

You can read all about her on the below page and website, give her a follow to follow her journey.
