At Clapton Community Football Club we know that community and solidarity is everything.
We know that working and playing together contributes to our mental well-being.
We also know that sometimes in life, we may be isolated, without a community, without a team, or just in need of a little extra help to get our heads back in the game.
On May 16, 2021, Alice May Williams, Sophia Axelsson, Lucy Rolington, Capucine Riom, Rebecca von Blumenthal and Jack Francis will run the Hackney Half-Marathon to raise money for Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest.
All of us appreciate the importance of organisations like Mind, some of us have benefitted from its services in the past, and want to give back.
In any given year, mental health problems will affect one in four people in the UK, responsible for the largest burden of disease in the country – affecting 28% of the population.
Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest (Mind CHWF) is driven by the needs of people experiencing mental distress and we won’t give up until everyone gets both support and respect.
Support our team to support our local community. Let’s show some solidarity to our friends inside and outside our football family.
