What a year 2020 has been! One that none of us could ever have predicted or want to repeat again. From a fundraising point of view, our events were being cancelled one-by one, and things started looking fairly bleak…but our amazing fundraisers and supporters have still been there when we needed them the most.
From kick ups, 25-day sit ups, Yorkshire Three Peaks, Yorkshire Three Peaks 3 times in 3 days, a Dales Way walk, a West Highlands Walk, swimming 100 lengths, outdoor swimming, 5ks, 10ks and marathons, half Ironman, cycle challenges, fitness classes, crafternoons, bake offs, raffles, head shaves, music events, 600 Mile September Challenge, #CarryingtheBurden, 1000km running challenge all the way in Australia to name just a “few” – the list is endless.
We really do have the most fantastic supporters and we’d like to say a *huge* thank you to everyone who got creative to find ways to work within the limitations of social distancing restrictions to fundraise for Leeds Mind. Every penny raised will make such a difference and enable us to continue to provide the vital services and support we offer to the people of Leeds with mental health difficulties. You are all amazing; we really couldn’t do what we do without you!
Roll on 2021!
