MIMHC’s Walk and Talk scheme raises over £6,000 with time left to give
The Mortgage Industry Mental Health Charter’s (MIMHC's) Walk and Talk initiative raised over £6,000 for charity, with time still left to donate.

The Walk and Talk initiative saw Jason Berry (pictured), MIMHC co-founder and group sales director at Crystal Specialist Finance, along with industry stalwart Jonathan White, walk a 125-mile route from Tamworth to London to fundraise for mental health charities.

The Walk and Talk initiative saw over 20 participants across the sector complete different legs of the journey.

The project aimed to promote physical activity and better communication as key ways to boost emotional and psychological wellbeing.

There is time to donate until 24 May; follow this link: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/jason-berry-2

The £6,008 raised so far is going towards Young Mind, which aims to stop young people’s mental health reaching crisis point.

Berry said: “We’ve braved blisters and the full force of unpredictable weather to ensure we shine a light on mental health for those working in the mortgage sector.

“MIMHC organised Walk and Talk 2024 specifically to raise awareness of the importance of exercise, combined with full and frank conversations about mental health.

“I’m delighted that we’ve already raised over £6,000 for Young Minds, and I hope more people can find the time to donate before the JustGiving page closes later this week.”

White added: “For each of the 21 participants who joined us at some point during the week, this was a journey to better mental health.

“In addition to raising awareness of the importance of physical activity for mental wellbeing, it was fantastic to raise so much money for Young Minds, which is dedicated to ensuring every young person gets the mental health support they need, when they need it.”
