John's Sponsored Walk For Mind in West Essex

Next Tuesday 17th February, John Ullathorne is undertaking an impressive personal challenge to raise funds for Mind in West Essex following help and support our services.

John has faced a number of hurdles since his breakdown including being agoraphobic for 9 years.  He has had to re-learn to read and write, how to make a cup of tea, learn about his family but most importantly about himself.

John says "its been a long journey to get to where I am now with ups and downs, tears and laughs, fears and falls but if I can do it, so can anybody else."

John will be doing my one mile walk which would take an average person approx. 20mins but with his disabilities this challenge is likely to take him 2-3 hours.

We're all wishing John the best of luck and if you would like to sponsor him to help support his endeavour, please visit - or you can wish him luck via our Facebook page.
