CHARITY UPDATE - CALLUM HALL

It's a while since we provided an update on Paralympic Athlete Callum Hall (who we are delighted to be sponsoring); So we've asked him to bring everyone up to speed on what he's been up to since the end of 2018.

Callum explains "In January I competed in my first marathon of the year in Dubai where I finished 7th. Unfortunately I had food poisoning the week before, which drained my energy levels and affected my lead up into the race, however I still pushed 1 minute outside my PB, a good sign that training has been working!

TIME TO TALK DAY 2019

Discussing Mental Health and Wellbeing can still be difficult for some people, so this ‘Time to Talk Day’ we want to encourage people to have the confidence to speak up. 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our life time, so it is important for everyone to feel that they can open up and discuss how they are feeling. Often speaking about an issue can be the beginning of recovery as you are opening yourself up to access help.
