Fantastic effort by Valley team to raise funds for Mind mental health charity
A big shout out to Danny Hanks, based at RAF Valley, who has been our Mind Champion over the last year and raised a total of over £3400 towards our chosen Corporate charity through the fund raising initiatives he organised.
Danny was responsible for initiating the 1334 challenge where 28 Ascent personnel collectively ran/walked 1334 miles over a month to raise awareness that 1334 people had taken their own lives between Jun and Sep 2020. This raised £2191.
The Christmas Appeal which included a bake sale raised £223.
And another RAF Valley colleague Pete Barry raised £917 by running 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours.
Thank you Danny for all your efforts to drive awareness of mental health; and contributing to fundraising for this really important cause.
