One of the reasons I wanted to sell these wristbands was to raise money for charities and awareness. Some people do this by running races or jumping out of planes – that is just a bit beyond me at the minute and so this is my small part.

I looked around for an overall charity but there didn’t seem to be any and so I have decided on 4 charities that will receive the money. All I ask is that when you buy a wristband, please let me know which of these you would want your donation to go to.

Rape Crisis England and Wales

Rape Crisis (England and Wales) campaigns continuously to raise awareness of sexual violence, its prevalence and effects and, in particular, they highlight the importance and need for appropriate, high-quality and specialised support for survivors. They challenge attitudes and press for change.

They also work with other organisations, agencies and government departments to improve the response to those who are affected by and those who perpetrate sexual violence.

Combat Stress

A small but significant number of Veterans leave the Armed Forces with psychological wounds. These can lead to depression, phobias, anxiety, relationship problems and, in some cases, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Combat Stress works with Veterans of the British Armed Forces, and members of the Reserve Forces, through effective treatment and support for mental health problems.


Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem.

But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling to get the support they need. Still unable to access the services that could change their life. Still facing prejudice and misunderstanding.

Mind believes no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. They’ll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner. And they’ll push for a better deal and respect for everyone experiencing a mental health problem.

Anxiety UK

Anxiety UK works to relieve and support those living with anxiety disorders by providing information, support and understanding via an extensive range of services, including 1:1 therapy. They work regularly with external agencies and healthcare professionals to improve services for those living with anxiety disorders. They also campaign to raise awareness of anxiety disorders.
