Brinds Well Day Nursery Deputy Manager takes on Tough Mudder

Facing a high-adrenaline course of 25 obstacles over 10 miles, Vanessa Lawrence, Deputy Manager at Brinds Well Day Nursery in Orpington took on the Tough Mudder race in aid of mental health charity, ‘Mind’.

Participating to raise vital funds for the cause, Vanessa battled a range of gruelling challenges from ditches to climbing walls in order to reach the finish line. After receiving donations from generous colleagues, family and friends, she has managed to raise nearly £300 for the charity.

Vanessa explained;

“The Tough Mudder was extremely hard work but such a rewarding experience. I am delighted to be able to donate £272 to such a worthy cause, especially on Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.”

Brinds Well has adopted Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales which offers specialised services, advice and support to those living with a mental health problem, for a year-long fundraising drive.

Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Money raised will fund the charity’s work including the Mind Infoline and campaigning to secure a better deal for everybody who experiences a mental health problem.
