We are raising money on behalf of a brilliant grass-roots mens' mental health charity called Talk Club (Registered Charity. No.1194033). It is part of a wider fundraising effort, organised by Talk Club in honour of our brother, called 'Miles for Miles'
Our route will be along the Offa's Dyke Path, from mid-Wales to Chepstow. This ain't no mosey along the flat. We have it on good authority that no record company executive or producer has ever walked so far in one go (at least not since Uber was invented). The 3 day route is below.
It will be a gruelling task and I hope you can dig deep to help us smash our target.
Suicide is still the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK, and charities like Talk Club provide vital support and community to help prevent mental ill-health.
About Talk Club:
TALK CLUB is a grass-roots male mental fitness movement. Formed in Bristol, in March 2019 by Neil Harrison, Claire Wilkinson, Ben Akers, Tom Watson, Gavin Thorpe and Blue O'Connor who all believe in the benefit of talking about our worries and preventing mental ill health through positively promoting mental fitness. It has now grown into a force for good, with over 2000 men around the country regularly opening up about their feelings in 52 groups by answering: How are you? Out of 10? At its simplest form it’s a safe male talking community. But it has developed into something far bigger and more important than that. It has grown into a symbol of positivity for mental health. Talk Club achieved Charity Status in April 2021 and this is their first big fund-raising event.
