A Shore Thing
We are ordinary women taking on an extraordinary challenge to raise funds and awareness for mental health charity Mind.
We will row nonstop and unaided from London to Land’s End in June 2021 as part of the GB Row Challenge, navigating the worlds busiest shipping lane, an unforgiving coastline, winds, tides and the unpredictable British weather, in shifts throughout the day and night, for 500 miles.

How are we doing?
So far we have raised £30 towards our £10,000 target! Thank you for your support.
We will be splitting donations between two local mental health charities.
Cornwall Mind supports people with mental health difficulties, providing recovery focused services and activities throughout the County.
We work with people to support them in achieving their goals and engaging in their local communities.We provide advice and
support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote a better
understanding of mental healthOur current services are listed under the headings Active, Community and Creative Minds, we also offer support to Falmouth/Penryn/Exeter University.
There is some great work already happening in Devon, but as the third largest county in the country, there are also areas with little or no access to mental health support.
We want to work in partnership with colleagues in Devon to increase our reach to people at greater risk of isolation.
Change is a process and not an event – so we will be taking the development of Devon Mind step-by-step.
We will spend the next 12 months until March 2020 finding out about the services people need in Devon, what partners we can work alongside, and how we can raise funding
to expand our flagship Recovery College service across the county over the coming years.
We won't give up until
everyone experiencing a mental health problem
gets support and respect.
