We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Knowing that suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK, a number of Barnsley FC fans are undertaking a mammoth road trip across Europe in order to raise vital funds for MIND. The money raised from this challenge will add to the precious funds that allow MIND to support over 400,000 people each year who experience mental health issues.
Adhering to the ‘musical theme’ and strict vehicle limitations, a 1991 Mazda MX5 has been branded with Barnsley FC’s crest and the popular line ‘It’s just like watching Brazil’. Toby Tyke is also set to feature and will be snapped at breath-taking landmarks such as Lake Como and Reds fan, Sue Greatorex, is excited to get going.
"We are all looking forward to this challenge, 2,000 miles in five days, but also really proud to be taking 'Barnsley' to some of the most stunning places in Europe. It's our chance to show everyone what a fantastic club we are and what a difference we Reds fans can make to people's lives. Your donation is important no matter how large or small."
Departing for Italy on Wednesday (September 5th), supporters will be kept up to date with the progress of Sue and Toby through a daily blog posted on barnsleyfc.co.uk.
