A huge well done to parking supervisor Liam Groves who ran the Weston Super Mare Half Marathon and raised £385 for Mind in Somerset.
Liam completed the race in 1 hour and 35 minutes and even got a PB!
Keen runner Liam, who’s worked at SPS for 3 years, knows first hand about the support that Mind offer and is passionate about raising awareness of how they can help anyone suffering with mental health issues.
“Like many people, over the past 18 months, I have seen my mental health suffer and until I was in that situation I never appreciated how debilitating it can be to your life and those around you. I suffered with anxiety and found simple day to day tasks hard to complete. It affected my home life and my career and I was at a real low. I am proud to say that I am one of the lucky ones that came out the other side but many don’t. Running has been one of the ways I have been able to accept and manage my anxiety, so I thought taking on my first ever running event would be an apt way to fundraise”.
Liam spent months training for the marathon and weas delighted to be able to raise £385 for Mind.
