I’m going to take a 156 word break from being a sarcastic bitch and talk to you about something really important.
Mental health. Not to put too finer point on it, it affects us all in one way or another and is, for the most part treated with contempt, rather than the understanding and appropriate treatment that it needs.
On the 14th of June at 15:00 I am swimming two miles on Lake Windermere to raise greatly needed funds for Mind - funds that ultimately go towards supporting individuals and their families through spates of mental illness and tough times.
Please could you help a brother out by reblogging, retweeting, whatever and showing your love for a slightly fat chic trying to raise money for charity. If you can and you’d like to sponsor me, please see link below.
It’s going to be cold and it’s going to be tough, but if I can reach my fund raising target, I don’t care if it takes me four hours to finish - even if I have to do it backstroke!
I would love to raise £500 for this cause, and a big hurrah and thank you to those of you who have sponsored me already!
