On 26th Feb 2017, five of us walked round Carsington Reservoir - four of us dressed in onesies! It was an 8 mile walk - cold and VERY windy at times, but we made it all the way round and had a lot of fun along the way!
It was great to get out and about, as that's something all four of us with BPD really struggle with in the winter. Having chance to chat with each other helped us all feel less isolated and it gave us an opportunity to do something active too.
Aaaaand we raised a HUGE £1187.75 (with a little more to come) thanks to so many incredibly generous and supportive people!! AMAZING!!!
Thank you SO much to all who've supported us and/or donated. We are the ONLY charity in the UK specifically focussing on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) - a severe mental health condition, and we are a very small charity! The amount raised will make a massive difference to us in raising awareness and fighting the stigma of BPD and improving support and social inclusion for people with the illness - watch this space!
In the mean time, have a mooch through our photos from the walk!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
