This week (13th-19th May 2024) is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is ‘movement.’ We all know how important physical activity is for our mental wellbeing and at Wintercomfort we offer many opportunities for people to take part in sport and recreational activities in the local community.

On Wednesday, to raise money for our Social Inclusion Programme,  a team of 10 staff and people supported by Wintercomfort took part in a challenge at Clip ‘n Climb Cambridge to reach the height of Mount Everest collectively.

It was an extremely tough challenge and although we didn’t reach the summit, we climbed just over 1,345 m proudly beating our Ben Nevis target from last year.

More importantly, it was a brilliant opportunity for people to be involved in an activity that would not usually be available to them, get active and ultimately have lots of fun, supporting one another and cheering each other on.

Thank you for all your generous donations so far, our JustGiving page will be open until the end of next week if you would still like to show your support.
