To donate a £1 by text to 70070 with the message GIMP90 £1

"It can't be, I don't believe it, there is a guy in a gimp suit"......Don't run, come over and have a chat with him, he doesn't bite!  I do this for fun and to attract attention. Whatever people say, I do not go out to offend and neither am I breaking any laws. Please either take a sneaky photo or ask me to stop and have a "selfie" with me.

If you take a photo of me, send it to or to my Twitter profile @GimpmanofEssex I will then donate £1 personally to Colchester Mind. Or, as many people have done you can donate directly on this page or by text.

Please help this cause, Mental health is something that is very much "brushed under the carpet" and can affect many people without you even realising.
