Depression Awareness Week 2014
A unique opportunity to climb the UK's highest mountain
Have you ever felt that depression makes every day feel like you're climbing a mountain? Well now you can do it for real by climbing Scafell Pike to raise awareness of depression and help us to raise vital funds to get Friends in Need off the ground.
You'll be part of a supportive group each of whose members has lived experience of depression and so understands the challenge, making the celebration at the summit all the more special. A window light in the valley below Sca Fell Pike reads 'I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my strength'. Please contact email@example.com to find out more.
