"A lot of those I love, suffer with mental illness. It hurts to see them suffer and when they cancel plans, are rude or unkind, or do not check in on you, it often feels like they do not value your relationship. This is not true. Your love means the world to them but mental illness convinces them they're not worthy of it so they push you away. It's so important to never give up on them. Check in on them. Research their condition. Ask them about it. Invite them out to that gathering, even if they said 'no' the last 10 times. They'll always appreciate being asked and I promise you they'll never forget the effort you put in to help them beat their demons"

Current Fundraising:

In September 2016, I trekked across beautiful China for 10 days being part of a team that, together, raised over £175,000! 

In November 2018 I put on my hiking boots once again and trekked across the Sahara dessert for 5 days, hiking for up to 8 hours a day and covering nearly 60 miles of rough terrain in treacherous weather conditions, with the aim of raising at least another £2000 for Mind! I am still shy of that target and need all the support I can get, even £1 would make a huge difference as every little adds up!
