On the 15th June 2022 - 19th June 2022, myself, Dad and Godfather, will set off to the Alps, where we’ll be trekking the mountains to raise money for MIND. We are going to be trekking the Mont Blonc region of the alps, which consists of trekking across 3 countries (France, Switzerland & Italy) in 3 days! 

We wanted to come together to do this, to not only challenge ourselves physically & mentally, but most importantly raise money for MIND, a charity very close to our hearts. Even though there’s an increased awareness on mental health, unfortunately, there’s still a big stigma and huge misunderstanding.

1/4 people are affected by mental health at some point in their lifetime and I am one of those. Our experiences as a family have driven our passion for raising awareness on mental illness, making us more determined to help those struggling and letting people know they aren’t alone in this fight !

By donating, the money raised will go towards helping those struggling in numerous ways such as 1-1 phone calls, counselling sessions & providing help to schools supporting students with mental health. 

Thankyou for supporting us all. We’re looking forward to keeping you updated on our journey!
