Introducing our ‘Charity of the Year’

We are proud to announce HUMEN as our ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2021.

Did you know that 76% of all UK suicides are male? HUMEN is leading the movement to improve and maintain men’s mental health, preventing them from suffering in silence and dying too young.

Our motivation to get involved with this charity has been our lifelong family friend Chris Ingram, who has inspired us with his incredible story. It shows that everyone can experience mental health challenges no matter how successful they are. Despite achieving his dream to be the first British Driver in 52 years to become FIA European Rally Champion, his mental health was suffering and he needed help from friends, family and supporters.

To help raise awareness, Chris (who is Manchester born and bred) will be taking on #Challenge76 where he will be challenging himself to run 76km and cycle 76km per month, in preparation for the World Rally Championship where he will compete on 76 stages against the World’s best drivers in his comeback to the sport. You can learn more about the challenge he is taking on by clicking on the link below, where you can also help to support Chris and this amazing charity by making a donation to his fundraising page.

When lockdown comes to an end, team Bluebell will be setting our own fundraising goal to support Chris so do watch this space for more details!
