Guest blog: Skydiving for MIND

(Last Updated On: February 15, 2022)

On 15th May myself and my friend Katie will be skydiving from 15,000ft at Dunkeswell Air Field in support of MIND Devon mental health charity.

We decided to do this skydive as mental health is close to a lot of people’s hearts, and the pandemic has pushed many people to breaking point. It is shocking how underfunded mental health is and the stigma surrounding these issues need to be broken.

MIND Devon supports people who need it most but they cannot continue their vital work without these funds. Without their input, a lot more people will be driven to make desperate decisions and interventions need to happen before this point is reached.

We would love to reach our fundraising target and possibly even more, so that more people can be helped.

Katie has had her own battles with mental health and she has been lucky enough to come out the other side. I have been very fortunate to have never suffered myself but many people close to me have.

If you feel that you are able to donate, even a small amount, towards our fundraising mission it would be gratefully received and help towards making a difference to people’s lives.
