Story

I am once again entering into the fundraising world & asking for your kind donations to support the free to access wellbeing and crisis services delivered by HEH Mind. 

Some of you will know my story, and have potentially donated to previous fundraisers (mega thanks btw), but here’s a quick recap…

Around 2013 I began experiencing depression, certain life events then happened and over time my depression worsened and I began experiencing desires of self harm and suicidal thinking. 

I struggled with my depression for over a year before I considered looking for support. Eventually I visited the Mind website and I saw my GP, but it was still another 6 months before I began to accessing support. For me this included medication and various forms of therapy. Each has played a role in my continued recovery. 

I am very proud to have since had the opportunity to support, volunteer and work for mental health charities and campaigns. 

Local services like those offered by HEH Mind make a real difference to peoples lives every day. They quite literally save lives. 

However, HEH Mind are a charity; they need support, like donations, to continue to deliver essential free to access services.

So, I’m back on the fundraising. This time round it’s a tri-fundraising campaign.

Fundraising activity 1 - Charity hair cut donation

In June I will be donating 10 inches of my beautiful hair to Little Princess Trust. This will be my third donation having previously donated 12 inches in 2018 and 10 inches in 2019.   

Fundraising activity 2 - Tattoo  

In October (or November) I will be getting a mental health & Mind related tattoo. This will be linked to my mental health journey and my relationship with Mind (locally and nationally). 

Fundraising activity 3 - Running 500 miles in 2022

I’ll be going a little further than last time having completed 500k (311 miles) in 2019 as part of a joint fundraising activity for HEH Mind & the national charity Mind.
