Do you want to help improve mental health and wellbeing across Lancashire? Will you stand up for better mental health and wellbeing for all in Lancashire?
Join us by Breaking Boundaries and help us cover 1668 miles in ten days as we attempt to go around the palatine boundary of Lancashire four times! Because Lancashire Mind is there for everyone: the 4 in 4 as well as the 1 in 4 people living with a mental health condition in Lancashire.
You can walk, run, swim, even hop – whether that’s alone, with friends, family or colleagues!
Why break boundaries?
We may be coming out of lockdown, but the struggles and challenges people face continue and are very real. That’s why we are Breaking Boundaries again this year. Breaking Boundaries launched in 2020 and was created out of a desire to do of three things:
- spreading the word about better mental health for all
- celebrating Lancashire
- encouraging people to get active during lockdown whilst raising a few quid.
Fast forward 12 months and it's back. Now more so than ever Lancashire Mind needs we your help to help ensure that people in Lancashire: feel able to talk about their mental health; ask for help when they need it; and and know where to access the support they need to.
Last year we challenged our supporters to travel the boundary once- 417 miles. This year we want to cover the boundary four times- everyone has mental health and as a charity we are here for the 4 in 4 as well as the 1 in 4 who live with a mental health condition. We are doing this for everyone as every one in Lancashire deserves to have good mental health.

Every donation will help us raise much needed funds and ultimately increase the work we can do to support others.
As Lancashire's local mental health and wellbeing charity, all money donated will go directly to Lancashire Mind and helping us to achieve our vision of mental wellbeing for all. We're working towards a Lancashire where: we can all achieve good mental health and wellbeing, people living with a mental health condition get the right support when needed and we don't treat people differently because of their mental health.
