Story

Hi, my name is Jules. Two years ago I suffered a mental health illness, which, to be honest, had been building for several years. Farming is a lonely occupation with loads of different challenges, many of which we have no control over.  I have learnt that anyone can suffer with their mental health at any time and for any reason. 

During my illness I received support from my family and friends who have helped me on my road to recovery. I also talked to 'The Farming Community Network' (FCN), a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times.

One of the activities that has helped me over the last year is taking up cycling again, as it is something that helps with my mental health and also my fitness. I am cycling from London to Paris on an organised event in July, as a challenge that will push me hard, but also to raise funds for FCN, who I have also started volunteering for. I would love you to support me if you feel you can.

Thanks so much for reading this. Jules
