Fundraising for mental health during lockdown: Deb’s story

Each bear took about 7 hours to make. I was fortunate to have kept working throughout the lockdown so when I wasn’t working, I was crocheting! I made over 30 bears in total and raised £545 to donate to the Mental Health Foundation.  Another fundraising opportunity presented itself when it became compulsory to wear face masks in shops and on public transport.

I have made over 250 masks so far and the profit from these will also be donated to the Mental Health Foundation.In 2018 I was chosen to run the London Marathon for the Foundation. Unfortunately, I slipped down a few stairs and damaged my knee, but I was determined to participate in the Marathon, so I had to approach it differently. I trained to speed walk it instead.
