Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 will take place from 13th – 19th May, with the theme of “Movement: Moving more for our mental health.”

We’re very grateful when our supporters contact us to ask how they can fundraise for Music Support. Why not think about moving a bit more during Mental Health Awareness Week this year, getting active and promoting wellbeing whilst raising crucial funds in the process? This is exactly what the team at TicketSellers and Tom Pitts (the latest additions to Music Support: The Roots Hall of Fame) kindly did for us….

TicketSellers: Miles for mental Health 

In January 2024, the team from TicketSellers accumulated miles through various exercises ranging from walking and running to squash, football and rugby, recording a massive 803.8 miles in four weeks, raising £1,033.80 for Music Support. 

“The initiative not only promoted a healthier lifestyle but also encouraged our team to step outdoors, breathe in fresh air and enjoy a change of environment.”

Tom Pitts – Amsterdam to Bilbao 

In October 2022, as a result of Music Support helping him to turn his life around, musician Tom decided to raise funds for us by taking on the challenge of cycling from Amsterdam to Bilbao.

“In the end I raised around £800. I really hope the money goes to help someone who was in a similar situation to me and can convince someone reading this that they aren’t alone and help is available.”
