For 7 days the 16kg Mental Health Awareness Kettlebell was carried by our Director Gavin Tuach. The kettlebell was to signify the weight of mental health someone may feel when experiencing their own challenges. Between the 28th March and 4th April the kettlebell was carried over 80,000 steps, a minimum of 10,000 steps a day and then on the final day 20,000 steps. The kettlebell expertly branded by partners Tailored Branding turned some heads when being carried out in public to such places like B&Q and Gavin’s place of work.
This fundraiser for Hidden Warriors CIC also had a beneficiary of the Children’s Mental Health Charity, Place2Be. Place2Be focus on improving children’s mental health and were the stand out choice for Hidden Warriors CIC to also fundraise for. A total of £849 was raised with a donation of £425 made to Place2Be. A huge thank you to everyone that supported, donated but also reached out and spoke up about the importance of mental health.
During this fundraiser we had the pleasure of recording an interview for BFBS radio that went out on air and we also recorded daily videos for social media. These videos can now be found on our YouTube Channel (link below). Once again, thank you on behalf of Hidden Warriors CIC for all your support. ”Warriors Walk Among Us”.
