Josh’s Walk to Rediscovery

7 July, 2021

Josh, a former patient of ours, is undertaking the incredible challenge of walking a 630 mile journey around the South West coast. In May he started his journey in Poole Harbour and will follow the coastal path right up to Minehead, Somerset.

In May last year, Josh attempted to take his own life and credits the Air Ambulance for saving his life.

“If it wasn’t for the quick response and dedication of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and the emergency services I wouldn’t be here today.”

His challenge is in aid of his own mental health, raising awareness and supporting the Air Ambulance.

So far Josh has raised an amazing £1,482 along his adventure. You can follow along and support Josh on his inspirational journey over on his Facebook page: My walk to Rediscovery

“I’m doing this for myself and my mental health, but I figured why not kill two birds with one stone and raise money and awareness for the organisation who was there to save my life.”
