Lucy's Move for Mind

9 March 2021

Lucy Cooper, one of our community care workers recently experienced a decline in her mental health. Her GP and others who were supporting her recommended exercise so she decided to try it.

Lucy says:

“The team started using Strava and I was recording my steps while also helping myself feel good from walking. I decided to raise money and awareness for Mind, to be honest about how I was feeling and hopefully encourage others to do the same. I set out to raise £150 and walk 30 miles in 30 days. I’ve now raised £600 and I walked 106.5 miles in 30 days!

"I will continue to walk, continue to stay positive and share awareness and honesty around mental health. A good friend is a vlogger and actor and said he would write me a parody to “The Proclaimers 500 miles” once I had raised £500 and here it is”.

Well done Lucy!
