A Gayton man will be taking on a running challenge this April in aid of a charity that provides rural mental health support to improve wellbeing and prevent suicide.

Richard Grant, along with supporters, will be running a continuous 1.8 mile loop around Gayton village from sunrise to sunset.

The charity YANA provides confidential support and their helpline can result in fast track access to free counselling with professional counsellors who understand rural life.

The support hub at The Crown Inn in Gayton will allow people to turn up and show show support to Richard's challenge.

Richard is running in memory of his friend Patrick Joice who received help from the organisation and also raised some £50,000 before he died.

Friend and colleague Ellen Fake said: "The repeated laps around the same 1.8 mile loop of Gayton village is designed to be a challenge physically, and mentally as it’s repeatability reflect the mental challenges faced by many."
