Anisha Fundraiser for Samaritans

A really lovely message sent to us by Anisha Patel, we are so happy to have supported her in her aim to raise money for the Samaritans! GA helped Anisha in support by donating £200 for her fundraiser for Samaritans.
 
Dear Gujarati Association,

As you will be aware, yesterday I completed my “walk 100 miles” challenge for the Samaritans Charity Fundraiser and my walking journey has ended. 💚❤️💚. It has been an amazing experience and I have been accompanied by many walkers along the way helping me build the mileage.🥾🥾

Although the challenge was called “ walk 50 miles in October” for World Suicide Prevention 🌍 and mental health awareness, I personally challenged myself to “walk 100 miles in October”. My final mileage was 242 and I have raised just over £1800 and I am still awaiting further payment. I am absolutely delighted to say the least 😊

I have been overwhelmed by the support and many people asking to walk one walk with me. 🚶🏽‍♀️I have worn my T Shirt with pride on every occasion and importantly, it was to gain awareness of this charity. Mental health is nothing to be ashamed of. Do not suffer in silence. Help is out there. It’s important to work in collaboration to end the stigma attached to mental health.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the the GA for both supporting me and their very kind donation. It will certainly help make a difference in many peoples lives. 🙂 I have made some wonderful friends from the GA along the way and I am blessed by their support towards me and this great cause.
I hope that I have inspired you all. ❤️

And finally, After 20 years in the NHS, I am leaving as a Nurse Practitioner for pastures new. 🧳. Before I left I wanted to give something back that would still help others. This fundraiser has enabled me to do this.
I ask that you look after yourselves in these unprecedented times, to be kind and stay safe. Once again, Thank you 💚💚💚

Thank you
Anisha
