Your stories: Why I’m running the Brighton Marathon for Westmeria

“I am 44, married and have 3 fabulous teenage boys. I have lived in the local area for nearly 20 years after moving from Bexleyheath in the late nineties.

I took up running in parallel with therapy sessions I received from Westmeria and soon discovered that a healthy body does indeed actually help develop a healthier mind. Running certainly helps me to cope with my depression and anxiety issues.

I personally know Westmeria Counselling receive no government or local authority funding so charitable donations are critical for their provision of care and support. The help and support that Westmeria offer is invaluable it is Life saving, Life changing and Life affirming.

Thanks for taking the time to read my little summary, and thank you for any donations you make.”
