B strong U belong super fundraisers!

Strong U Belong is the brain child of Luke Elstone and a group of his friends. Luke tragically lost a close friend, Pete Davies, who committed suicide in 2012. Luke said: “The worst thing was that none of us were aware how bad things had become for Pete”. Since Pete’s death, Luke’s friends have spoken more openly about their own depression, anxiety and self-doubt.

The group are fundraising for two local mental health charities including Second Step, aiming to raise £10,000 in total. Their first sporting event this October was an obstacle race: Somerset’s Rocket Race. The group have a whole host of fundraising events planned including half marathons, triathlons, a quiz night, and a music festival. These activities culminate in a trip to climb Mount Longonot in Kenya in June 2017.

If you are interested in joining Luke and his fundraising group, he’d love to hear from you at bstrongubelong@hotmail.com

“We want to help others who are struggling with their mental health with how to access help so that they do not suffer in silence”.
