We love to celebrate our fantastic fundraisers, out there doing all sorts of challenges to raise funds for York Mind's vital mental health services.
Meet James, who is currently in the middle of a sponsored 8-week 'Dessert Fast' (giving up all sweet baked goods!) to raise funds. James decided to take on the challenge in response to the negative impact of the pandemic on mental health: "I want to help people out, who may be suffering and don't know where to turn to for help during this challenging time. No one should suffer ill mental health alone. Giving up desserts of any kind is a big challenge for those who know me! I’m baking pizza / bread with the housemates at weekends instead of desserts to pass the lockdown by."
