Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
On 14th June Luke, Pat and Hadley will be taking on a cycling event called the Vatternrundan which starts and finishes in Motola, Sweden.
For those of you not familiar with the Vatternrundan it involves a 300km or 186 mile cycle through the night around the Lake Vattern in Sweden. The ride will get underway around 8pm local time and should take in the region of 12-14hrs to complete. To put that in perspective, imagine cycling for your entire working day :)
Why take on such an event you ask? We would like to raise both awareness and some additional funding for Mind. The chances are someone you know has experienced mental health issues and in this day and age no one should suffer in silence, it's not something to be ashamed of and we hope that people will speak up and receive the support they require. Mind do an amazing job of assessing and helping to support those experiencing mental health issues.
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year, In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week.
We would all really appreciate if you could donate whatever you can, this would be greatly appreciated by Mind and those that are receiving support from this amazing charity.
Thank you in advance from all three of us!
