Mind has been chosen as one of the eight partner charities for the “Heads Together” Campaign, founded by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry and has the privilege of being the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to apply for some of the 100 Local Mind allocated places and I’m delighted to tell you know that we secured 10 of these places.

The Lucky 10 are;

Paul Croston         Training & Quality Manager
Lisa Jakimciw        Business Development Director
Luke Rushworth     Counselling & Connect for Health Administrator
Karen Pearse         Discovery College Manager
Cat Bailey             Housing Support Worker
Emily Jayes          Wellbeing co-ordinator – Connect for Health
Jonathan Rush      Wellbeing co-ordinator – Connect for Health
Jennifer Healey     Administrator – Workplace Leeds
Sarah Coles         Partner at Irwin Mitchel (CoTY)
Paul Hancock        IBM

Along with training for the 26.1 miles each runner needs to raise £2000 each – We are kick starting their fundraising campaign with a Christmas Jumper day on Wednesday and keep your eyes peel for a number of fundraising events early next year.
