"Having the use of safe spaces like The Hub and The Town Hut, where people can feel accepted, understood and valued, has been a life saver!" Sabrina, Mental Health Resource Supporter

Fundraising for Mental Health Resource

My name is Sabrina and I’m 35yrs old. From 22nd-28th August, I'll be fundraising for 2 local mental health charities: Mental Health Resource and The Town Hut Bexhill.

I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety for many years, but having the use of safe spaces like The Hub and The Town Hut, where people can feel accepted, understood and valued, has been a life saver!

Why am I fundraising?

These amazing Charities are very dependent on fundraising and during Covid-19 and lockdown, the charities had to be move from face to face support to online support, which many people found difficult to access. These charities also lost out on vital funds, as they couldn’t carry out fundraising activities and events and now their client numbers are only going to increase with the current cost of living crises.

What fundraising activities am I planning?

We all know that physical exercise is a good way to help with keeping mental health in check. So, from the 22nd August 2022 until 28th August, I am inviting people to join me in walking 50,000 steps. Options to join me include:

  • Walk 50,000 steps throughout the week. 
  • Join me on Sun 28th August for a walk along the seafront. Starting at Glyne Gap, Bexhill and walking to the De La Warr Pavilion and back (approx. 10,000 steps). If you have mobility issues and have a mobility scooter and would like to join in, you’re more than welcome to come along!

How to take part

I am asking that each participant donates £5 and I will also take any voluntary donations along the route. For further details about the event and bank details to make your donation, please download this additional information.

100% of the donations and participant fees will be equally split between the 2 charities.
