Finch become The Proclaimers – we did it!

Finch become The Proclaimers – we did it!

You may have already heard that during June Finch took on a huge challenge to walk or run 1000 miles to raise £1000 for Burton and District Mind.

We are so very proud to announce that we absolutely smashed our miles and we walked and ran 1238 miles!

To celebrate Finch turning 30 we have partnered with Burton and District Mind and we are aiming to raise £30,000 during 2022.

This challenge became something more than just raising money for charity, it really helped create a sense of togetherness within Finch. It inspired a lot of us to get out and about which is great for mental well-being as well as physical, and we now have a group on Strava that we all contribute to in true community style.

We had dogs, kids and families get involved and there was no shortage of novel ways to contribute to the target including festivals, obstacle courses and even walking due to train strikes! Thank you to all of the Finch’s that put in the miles, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Jade Carter deserves a very special mention as she is spearheading the fundraising this year, and she has done a truly fantastic job at arranging everything and motivating us.

At the time of publishing we have raised £550 out of the target £1000, if you can spare any money (we know money is tight at the moment!) then please donate here.

You could be helping someone really in need of Mind’s services when they need it most.
