Fundraising for Mid Kent Mind
World Mental Health Day is a day to talk about mental health and show everyone that mental health matters. It’s also a day to let people know that it’s okay to ask for help, no matter what you’re going through.
On World Mental Health Day, some of the SHC team met on Teams for “Tea and Talk” – this year’s theme from the Mental Health Foundation.
SHC has walked to raise money for Mid Kent Mind in previous years, but as our team is scattered around the country, rather than getting together (and raising our carbon footprint), this year we decided to each walk locally.
The SHC Kent team walked 10km for Mid Kent Mind, around Kings Hill and West Malling, fuelled by coffee from the Hungry Guest!
Bill Bruce completed 10 laps of the lake at Stourhead with Louis the Labrador, and said: “Louis would’ve done more, but I am the ‘Senior’ Consultant and anyway, the Spreadeagle pub was open!”
Many other colleagues, friends and family also walked to raise funds for our chosen charity.
But there’s more to this than just walking…
SHC’s Social Media Consultant Wendy Roberts was in Matfield near Tunbridge Wells, and took part in a seated and standing dance class for older people and people with balance and mobility issues – called Active Futures… It all counts!
We have raised £500 this year, but if you also want to contribute this worthy cause, we have left the JustGiving page open:
