We know the current global situation is an uncertain and stressful time for many people. Hopefully this information put together by Mind, regarding self-care whilst in isolation is something you will find helpful.

You can continue to support us through organising your own challenge event or through a direct donation.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding and we really appreciate all the efforts you have made so far.
