THANK YOU TO ALL MY SPONSORS AND EVENT ATTENDEES WHO'VE MADE ME REACH MY TARGET IN ONLY 7 MONTHS!! LET'S KEEP GOING AND RAISE EVEN MORE FOR MIND- IT ALL GOES STRAIGHT TO THEM!
As you may or may not be aware I will be trekking through the Peruvian High Andes this June, in aid of Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. Despite having managed to break my ankle in two places in August and undergoing an operation to fix the bones, I now have some semblance of a training programme in place and am hoping to get to my fittest level yet with the aim of actually enjoying some of the trek. See the story of my broken ankle on the "Week in Pictures" section for Aug 22-28 on www.thisisyork.co.uk.
Mental health problems are common, in fact 1 in 4 of the population will experience mental distress at some point in their lives and this can happen to anyone. I have committed to raise £2,600 which could help fund the MindInfoline for 4 days, during which time 400 people in crisis could be helped. Many of these people might otherwise have nowhere to turn, so it is vital that this service continues to be funded. Can you help Mind achieve this by sponsoring me in this challenge?
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Mind The Mental Health Charity will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
So please sponsor me now! Many thanks for your support. Cheers, Clare
