A Worcester businessman has raised over £6,000 for YoungMinds, a mental health charity for children, young people and their parents.

Jonathan White, Director at Worcester-based Number Fifteen Recruitment, walked a 125-mile route from Tamworth to London alongside the ‘Mortgage Industry Mental Health Charter’s’ (MIMHC’s) founder, Jason Berry from Crystal Specialist Finance, with over 20 other participants walking different legs of the journey.

The ‘Walk and Talk’ initiative is part of MIMHC’s aims to promote physical activity and better communication as key ways to boost emotional and psychological wellbeing within the mortgage industry.
Over £6,000 raised so far is being donated to YoungMinds, which aims to stop young people’s mental health reaching crisis point.
Jonathan said: “We braved blisters and the full force of unpredictable weather to ensure we shine a light on mental health for those working in the mortgage sector. I’m delighted that we’ve raised over £6,000 for YoungMinds, and hope that when one young person has the courage to ask for help, the support they need will be there.”
Kelly White, Managing Director of Number Fifteen Recruitment said, “We are extremely proud of Jonathan and the contribution he has been able to make to HealthyMinds.”
She continued, “Anyone who follows our business will know that mental health in young people is an issue we support for very personal reasons and so we are delighted to be able to support such an essential charity.”
