Millwall participate in charity walk for World Mental Health Day

12 October 2021

Millwall Community Trust, Millwall Lionesses and many more participated in a ‘Miles For Mind’ charity walk for World Mental Health Day.

The walk started from The Den, where everyone received a free Millwall water bottle and wristband. All participants passed through a balloon arch to signify the start of the 2.2-mile walk.

The charity walk was organised to raise money for Mind and Millwall Community Trust.

Sean Daly, CEO of The Community Trust, said: “It was great to have everyone walk beside us and take the time to not only help raise money, but have an opportunity to talk about the importance of mental health.

“I’m glad we could raise money for Mind Charity, who play such an important part in creating a better platform for people to voice their mental health.

“I want to thank every single person who came, and I want to remind everyone that it’s okay to speak to someone you trust about any worries you may have.”

As Mind have stated, “race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, and class are barriers in many areas of our lives, including when it comes to mental health support. Together, we can change this. By doing just one thing, we can work towards that change.”

The walk ended at St Paul’s Sports Ground, where everyone received complimentary tea and coffee, and free entry into Millwall Lionesses' match against Whyteleafe Women’s FC.

The Lionesses recently appointed Jack Wheeler as their new First-Team Manager - a move which paid off, as the team had won 3-2 in his first match in charge.
