The Cause

Around 1 in 4 (28%) People in Wales suffered from a mental health issue during the COVID-19 pandemic

Operation Elevation has two aims. The first is to inspire others to tackle whatever problems they may be facing in life with resilience, grit and fortitude. The second is to raise £1,000 for Mind the mental health charity.


With lockdowns, restrictions, ever-changing rules and the fear of a rapidly  spreading virus, people's health and wellbeing have taken a huge hit over the last 2 years. The sad truth is, people suffering from mental illness can find the circumstances surrounding COVID particularly challenging. That's why it is so important to support charities, like Mind, to help them continue their fantastic work supporting people with mental illness during this crucial time.
