Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page!
My dad (Dave) and I have signed up to challenge ourselves to raise £5000 for Mind, and cycle a whopping 300 miles from London to Paris in July 2018. Given neither of us have ever attempted to cycle anywhere near that far in our lives, this should make for an interesting challenge...
Mind is a cause close to both our hearts, and that of many others. Mental health problems are strikingly common- with 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem each year. Additionally, reports show that only 1 in 8 people with a mental health problem are currently receiving treatment.
Mind provide practical support for people struggling with their mental health. With the help of your donation, they'll continue to provide help through offering both direct help (such as through their Mind Infoline, supporting people who need anything from legal advice to urgent help), but also by using research to improve public policy and primary care for people to mental health issues.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
