Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. My name is Terry Williamson I am 50 years old and live in the south end of the Shetland mainland.

 

I am doing a Sponsored Walk around the coast of the Shetland Islands and in the process hope to raise some funds for a local charity called Mind Your Head.  I have set up a Web Site to track the walk and provide information please take a look at  http://www.twilliamson.co.uk

 

Why am I doing this?

Well it’s pretty simple; I like walking, also I have been off my work since November 2009 with depression and Doctors tell me that exercise is a great tool in recovery from depression.

 

Why Mind Your Head?

One of their objectives is to reduce the stigma on mental illness. I think that is important and one of the ways this can be done is by being open and talking about it, the same as you would if it were a broken wrist. So that is why I am doing the walk for this charity.

 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
