Cycle challenge through the heart of
the East Midlands for fun and charity
The Pork Pie Pedal

Charities supported in previous years

The Pork Pie Pedal has raised £80,000 for charities in its first 8 years.

This year we are supporting YoungMinds, a charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people.

YoungMinds champions children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing across the UK. Driven by their experience they create change so that children and young people can cope with life’s adversities, find help when needed and succeed in life.

There is a tremendous need to support the mental health of young people. In 2004, 1 in 10 children aged 5-16 years, had a diagnosable mental health problem. But funding for CAMHS equates to just 0.7% of the total NHS budget and just 7% of mental health expenditure. This means that CAMHS turn away approximately 25% of children and young people referred to them.

YoungMinds campaigns, spreads the message about mental health in schools, run a parent’s helpline, provide information resources through their website and social media and provide consultancy and training services.
