Story

Mental health is an issue that has or will affect many of us in our lifetime, whether it be us directly or someone we know and love. 

Through research, I discovered the devastating fact that 1 in 4 people at some point in their life time will be affected by a form of mental health illness. There are many forms of this which include depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia, PTSD and schizophrenia to mention a few.

Because of this, I have chosen to climb the world's tallest freestanding mountain (19,000ft). My adventure will take place in August 2016 over a 10 day trek up kilimanjaro. 

I feel that mental health is an issue that is often underestimated and through my fundraising, I'd like to make more people aware of the help that the charity provides.

I hope you appreciate how difficult this challenge will be for me, therefore, please support me in my efforts to raise money for West Norfolk Mind. 

Thank you

Lee Bigland
