BOOST FOR BERKSHIRE MENTAL HEALTH FROM HUNGERFORD HARES. 

 

 

Hungerford Hares Running Club marked World Mental Health Day with a cheque presentation to Berkshire-based charity Sport in Mind.
A total amount of £1,655 was raised by the club through its annual Harey 8 race in June with proceeds also boosted by a special event at Hungerford Town Hall which marked the running club’s tenth anniversary. A match funding donation was also received from the NAV People’s Charitable Trust which provided an incredible total of £1,155.
Sport in Mind promotes mental well-being through sport and physical activity and raises awareness of mental health issues. Hungerford Hares Chairman, Mandy Waldon said: “This has been a milestone year for Hungerford Hares and it was particularly fitting for us to be able to present our cheque to Sport in Mind on October 10 which was World Mental Health Day. “We were also really pleased to be working in partnership this year with Sport in Mind, to help the recovery of people experiencing mental health problems and raising awareness of mental health and the importance of wellbeing. “We would also like to thank everyone who supported us this year and over the past ten years and contributed to the club’s growth during this time.” Sport In Mind Development Officer Laura Brooks said: “It was fantastic to receive such an amazing amount of money and to take part in the Harey 8 run. It was lots of fun. The money will be used to deliver sport and physical activity sessions in Hungerford. Thank you very much to the Hungerford Hares and NAV People’s Charitable Trust. You are superstars!”
