Serving fire fighters, Adam and Stu from St Mary’s fire station, Southampton are taking on the challenge of a lifetime.
Adam and Stu have both had to overcome some form of mental health problems during their working life. Through the tragic loss of colleagues, the regular pressures of making life and death decisions and attending dangerous incidents on a daily basis, the Minds Matter concept was born.
Through Minds Matter, Adam and Stu support mental health awareness, regularly holding mental health workshops and fundraising for charities. Supported by toob, their biggest fundraising challenge has begun, with the pair preparing to row across the Atlantic Ocean in December 2022 to raise money, with a target of £50,000, for Solent Mind and the Fire Fighters Charity whilst raising awareness of mental health.
