Almost 30 fundraisers took to the sky in support of better mental health for all those living in Lancashire. Jumping from up to 15,000ft our amazing supporters faced their fears and raised over £12,500.
As demand for services grows and accessing funding becomes more challenging, Lancashire Mind need the support of individuals and communities in Lancashire more than ever so that we can continue delivering vital, life changing mental health support and services.
It costs over £400 to deliver six one to one support sessions through virtual coaching for a young person experiencing a mental health condition. Services like this have been created by Lancashire Mind to ensure that young people:
- Do not have to wait to get support
- Are able to access bespoke help that is tailored to their needs
- Can go on to become more resilient and face challenges in life with confidence and understanding of their own mental health.
Fundraising and Communications Lead Emma Bateson said: "We can not thank our skydivers enough for taking part in such an amazing challenge. They were all so calm and despite some nerves, after lots of waiting, they all came down with huge smiles on their faces. Their fundraising will change lives and I hope they are all incredibly proud of what they have achieved."
