TO RAISE AWARENESS OF OUR CHARITY HAMMERSLEY HOMES AND TO JOIN IN WITH MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK WE ARE LAUNCHING OUR #7STRIVES CHALLENGE.
All we ask is that you strive to complete 7 things that you wouldn’t normally do, each day of the 7 days of Mental Health Awareness week from 18th – 24th May, and nominate 7 people to do the same. If one of your nominees declines the challenge they can donate to Hammersley Homes, (the suggested donation is £7 but all donations are gratefully received!) but we ask them to continue the spread by nominating 7 more people to get involved.
These endeavours could be physical, acts of kindness, creative, or anything that requires you to step outside you normal day to day routine and life.
Start thinking about what you would like to do and start nominating your friends and family to do the same as soon as possible. Talk about the challenges on your social media accounts and on the phone, zoom, skype or anywhere you can. Spread the word!
To take part you could use the following text:
