Gardiner Hill Foundation

We raise money to help those with a mental health illness

Charity Registration No. 1146433

Story

I have suffered from severe mental illness for the last 6 years. I’ve been severely depressed using self harm and suicidal tendencies just to cope. Navigo have supported me throughout including several long periods of hospitalisation under the mental health act. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been accepted on a 2 year therapeutic community therapy and I’m beginning to at last rebuild my life. I now want to say thank you for all the support they have given me. Gardiner Hill Foundation is the charity that supports Navigo and Mental Health services in my area. 

There is a big link with mental health and running. I have been working hard to improve my mental health and fitness by taking part in parkrun a weekly 5k event. I started by walking every step and even that was a struggle. Then I started running a few steps now after more than 50 attempts I have just managed to run the whole 5k albeit very slowly. It has taken a lot of sweat and determination  

I am now determined to complete Great Grimsby 10k to raise funds for Sequoia Therapeutic Community.
