Mind in Croydon Positive Steps

Positive Steps – A 15km Charity Walk

Lloyd Park, Croydon

24th May 2014

Positive Steps is back on this year and we are expecting it to be bigger and better than last year!

You can see all the photos from last year on our Facebook page.

We had a brilliant pilot event in 2013, everyone involved had fun and we raised a bit of cash too. So the date is in the diary, the park is booked and we are keen to get your registrations in early.

Last year, the amazing Ronnie Corbett came to open the event. We are yet to confirm who will be opening the 2014 event and we will release this information as soon as we can!


Positive Steps: call out for service user reps

Can you help? We are looking for new representatives who are interested in being Service User Rep’s at key mental health meetings, helping to shape and improve services in Bromley.

Positive Steps – Charity Walk in Lloyd Park – Saturday 25th May 2013

I am writing let you know that we are holding a 15km walk in May in Lloyd Park. This will raise much needed funds for Mind in Croydon in these difficult times, but don’t worry there is no requirement to get sponsorship (although it would be great if you do)!

Ronnie Corbett is coming to officially start the walk at 10am and we have lots of other fun activities throughout the day including a Crystal Palace Football Club coach teaching people ball skills (we are yet to confirm if there will be any players present).

Also, we are holding a ‘Living Library’ on a double-decker bus at the event and also on Croydon High Street on Tuesday 21st of May.  Our Living Library project challenges stereotypes by allowing the general public to speak to people with diagnosed mental health conditions.

Here’s a link to the information: http://www.mindincroydon.org.uk/positive-steps.asp#.UW0Vn1cgij1

We would appreciate if you could forward this around to your friends, family and colleagues.  Please let me know if you would like a poster to display.

Any distance you can manage walking would be great as the route is three times around the park and you are not obliged to complete the entire 15km.

We are also in need of volunteers if you know anyone who would like to get involved in this capacity.

Register for the walk now using the link above or if you don’t want to walk please feel free come along and support us!

If you would like any further information please let me know.

Many thanks.
