Keep on running for mental health

The manager of Leeds Building Society’s Halifax branch recently raised £1,000 by running the Edinburgh Marathon.

Damien Briscoe raised the funds for mental health charity Mind, a cause close to his heart, as his wife Laura is a mental health nurse, and some of his friends and family have been affected by mental illness.

He said: “I am planning to enter another marathon by the end of the year, and have applied for the 2016 London Marathon to raise further funds for Mind.
