Bike ride – Guernsey Mind

September 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

15-09-2019 Guernsey Mind’s Suicide Campaign

On Sunday Lee Corbet hosted a ride out for the Guernsey Mind’s Stop Male Suicide Campaign of which he is an ambassador and also the Manclub.

Bikers gathered at Portlett to enjoy a chat with tea and coffee ( some even had breakfast ) then 111 bikes rode the island north about and stopped at the White Rock Cafe.

The final total raised after a few post ride donations was £445 and it was also shown on the Channel TV news.

The message from the rideout was “It’s Ok not to be Ok” and it aims to smash through the stigma of mental health to get men talking rather than bottling up issues.

If over a hundred burly bikers can do it, I’m sure anyone can if they just try.
