You could say we are mad for
attempting this challenge, but I’d say we are madly passionate about the
charity that we are supporting. We understand that this will be a difficult
challenge – both physically and mentally. The Just Talk Campaign fully
understands what an affect emotional wellbeing issues are for people. They
provide a much-needed service for so many people both in the local community
and also wider afield. Everyone’s enthusiasm who is involved in the Just
Talk Campaign is both heart-warming and contagious! The Campaign was
started in 2016 and has achieved amazing things in the short time it has been
running, but it has so much more potential that it can fulfil with your kind
support and generosity.

Their core philosophy of Ubuntu –
collective community working together, is visible in every aspect of their work
– Saving and Changing Lives. One element of Just Talk Campaign’s
work is that they offer free drop-in sessions. Which gives people the
opportunity to come and talk about anything that is concerning them in a safe
and confidential environment. They also have individual counselling sessions available with Trainee
Counsellors. To find out more about the amazing work that the Just Talk
Campaign is involved in, please feel free to check out their website at: http://justtalkcampaign.co.uk/

We are also looking for
corporate sponsors, please contact us if you’d like more info on this.
