Bromley & Lewisham Mind’s Chief Executive, Ben Taylor, will be cycling across the breadth of England and raising money for the charity.
Ben (along with three friends) is going to be cycling across the breadth of England from Whitehaven in Cumbria to Tynemouth on the East Coast in September 2017, cycling across the Penines and through England’s highest village.
Ben said, “Although we are going to take a few days over it, the combination of my fitness levels, the hills and the fact that we’ll be carrying everything we need for the trip, means that this will be a real challenge.”
“Any sponsorship and donations will help no end with motivation in tackling those pesky hills. I’m raising money for Bromley & Lewisham Mind because I know the organisation will make really good use of the money raised to provide support for people with mental health problems and dementia. In particular, the money will be used to fund: MindCare Dementia Support Centres, Peer Support for people with mental health problems in Bromley and Lewisham and youth wellbeing sessions in local schools.
If you would like to sponsor Ben, you can do so on his JustGiving page.
