On 2nd - 4th June, I am donning my hi-vis for a cycling adventure with a friend from New York and my trusty bike Erich. We're pedalling from Whitehaven on the Irish Sea coast, through the Lake District, over the Pennines and along the River Tyne to the North Sea coast. After 140 miles, almost 10,000 feet of total ascent and three days, we'll finish in Tynemouth where I went to school.
I'm raising money for a small charity in Epsom called Love Me Love My Mind. They promote understanding of mental health and the wellbeing of the local community. The charity is run entirely by volunteers and funded by grants and donations.
We know several people involved in this lovely charity. There is a weekly drop in where people can take part in activities and share a meal. Love Me Love My Mind also host an annual Epsom Mental Health Week with fun activities, socials and talks that promote mental wellbeing.
Looking after your mental health and having a sense of community is more important than ever. Anyone could find themselves struggling with their mental health, even when they least expect it. Charities like Love Me Love My Mind ensure that people don't feel alone when they most need support.
I would be so grateful for any donations to this great charity.
Thank you for your support.
