A big thank you to Oxford University Lacrosse Club who have chosen to support Oxfordshire Mind this academic year. Over the festive season, each team (Men’s, Women’s and mixed) are aiming to raise £1270 through participation in lacrosse-themed activities. For example, the Men’s team are aiming to run 1270km as a club over the holidays. This target has been chosen as there are an average of 1270 patient suicides each year (i.e. someone who has been in contact with mental health services prior to their death) (MHN, 2016).
Thank you to all at OULC for taking on this challenging and for supporting our vital cause!
