As part of this year’s Children in Need a few of our brilliant volunteer Walk Leaders in the East Riding area, including Clare (MHM Beverley) and Poppy, Laura Burnhill (MHM Bridlington) walked with Kofi Smiles for his Big Walk Home Children in Need Challenge. They walked from Hedon to Thorngumbald, stopping in the primary schools along the way to talk the pupils.
This year, local BBC Radio in England along with stations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are encouraging you to Walk and Talk for BBC Children in Need in aid of Mental Health. We know that exercise and talking to someone else is good for everyone’s mental health. The idea is to raise money and have a good natter at the same time. At MHM we believe in the power of walking and talking. To find out where your local MHM walk is head to https://www.mentalhealthmates.co.uk/find-a-walk/.
