Friends of Brecon and District Mind
An annual walk up Pen-y-Crug
for mental health and wellbeing
Sunday 28 July. Meet in Brecon Cathedral car park at 2pm
The Friends of Brecon and District Mind's annual 'Tea-on-Top' walk takes place on Sunday 28 July. Organised to raise awareness of mental health issues, it revives a tradition at this time of year which was popular in the region until the 1950s of having a picnic on top of a local hill.
The walk, starting at Brecon Cathedral car park, will be a three-mile round trip, passing the ancient Maendu Well and exploring the Iron Age hill-fort of Pen-y-Crug with its spectacular all-round views including the Brecon Beacons. There will be tea, cakes, sandwiches and music. To help with catering it would be helpful if you could, please, let the organisers know if you intend coming along. While care will be taken, those taking part need to take responsibility for their personal safety. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please wear stout shoes and suitable clothing. There is no charge but donations to the Friends of Brecon and District Mind are welcome. We meet in Brecon Cathedral car park at 2pm.
Brecon and District Mind is a voluntary-sector organisation providing open-door facilities and a wide range of healthy activities and outreach services. Designed to support people who experience mental distress, these are delivered by experienced and friendly staff and volunteers. The services complement those provided by the community mental health team and other voluntary-sector agencies. They are, in part, funded by Powys Teaching Health Board and Powys Social Services.
The Friends of Brecon and District Mind support the work of Brecon and District Mind and help to raise awareness of mental health issues in and around Brecon, Crickhowell, Talgarth and Hay-on-Wye. They are a sociable group holding talks, activities and fund-raising events.
