Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Those of you that know me well will be shocked to find yourself looking at my dryathlon page! I am first and foremost doing this for my own health (physical and mental) as I think a break from the bubbly every now and then does us all the world of good... But probably more importantly I am doing this to raise money for Norwich and Central Norfolk charity MIND.
Mental health problems have affected many people I love and I know how important help and support is when people find themselves in poor mental shape. We all encourage people to sprint to the doctors with a jippy leg or a dodgy looking mole - why don't we recognise that you can be just as unwell in a different way? You have to be pretty brave to speak up when you are suffering so I want to help make sure when you do, the support services are there waiting.
MIND work with the local community to support people with mental health problems of all flavours! They offer community projects, counselling, courses and much more to help bring health and happiness across Norwich and Norfolk. I am actually thinking of taking a mindfulness course myself sometime in the near future, I could do with a little more calm!
Thank you in advance for your support, please donate as the more money I raise the less appealing a glass of vino on a Friday night will look!
Love you all xoxo
