Did you know that physical activity has a huge potential to enhance our wellbeing? 

A short burst of 10 minutes’ brisk walking increases our mental alertness, energy and positive mood and can increase our self-esteem and reduce stress and anxiety.

Not ever wanting to do things by halves, our yard operative, Chris, has pledged to run a whopping 200-miles around the Suffolk border for Mind – the mental health charity.

An extraordinary event – and for such an excellent cause – deserves overwhelming support, and on behalf of the Milbank Group, we are more than pleased to announce our contribution of £500 towards his overall target of £1,000.

We’ll leave you with these words from Chris, but from all at the Milbank Group, Good luck Chris!

“I have been lucky enough to find mental clarity through running, a brief moment of calm that helps me relieve the stresses of our super fast-paced society.

Having experienced mental unrest for several years, I appreciate it can be an ongoing journey with no final destination, however I’ve come to understand we can make this journey a beautiful adventure where the positive days can far outweigh the negative.Through minor lifestyle adjustments we can provide ourselves with some much-needed self-love that then attracts more positivity.

I’ve come to realise how important running is to me, beyond times and medals, it is my place of joy and peace. I would like to share this latest adventure with you and hopefully encourage you to lace up and get out on your own adventure!”
