My name's Ryan. I'm going to be skydiving on 13/09/2014 and have chosen Mind as the charity I want to jump for.
Mind is a mental health charity in the UK. They provide support and advice to the many people in this country suffering from a mental health problem. So many people suffer in silence and don't know where to turn, and charities like Mind give them somewhere to go and someone to talk to. They raise awareness and campaign to improve services, and recent achievements include positive changes to the Mental Health (Discrimination) Act 2013 and the Equality Act in 2010.
"We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect."
My online fundraising target is £125, and I need to raise £325 in total. Through offline and online donations, and with your help, I hope to far exceed this figure!
If you can donate anything at all, I would appreciate it so much. It would give me the experience of a lifetime, but more importantly.. the chance to give as much as possible to this amazing charity.
