A couple of years ago I watched as Ordnance Survey launched their brand, spanking new GetOutside campaign. I looked on in wonder at these inspirational, motivated and passionate people who love the outdoors. I was in a tough place at the time, battling with my mental health...
I had started to mooch the idea of using my own intense love of being outside to help nuture myself physically and mentally to a better place. This I have done, it is still a daily battle, but with the use of the outdoors I am in the happiest place I have ever been.
Thank you Ordnance Survey GetOutside, it worked, and now I am deeply honoured to have been selected as one of your 2018 Champions. If I can just touch the life of one person in the way it touched me then that to me is a success on an epic scale.
So much more to follow people - and remember - just #15Outdoors every day can help with your mental wellbeing. No excuses - its only 15 minutes!
