Andrew Sims has been a member of SignHealth’s Board of Trustees for over three years.  He is also a keen long-distance walker, having walked all over the Alps and once across part of The Sahara. In 2018, he raised funds for SignHealth by walking 60 miles in under 24 hours along the Thames Path!

Andrew believes that walks are a great way to raise awareness and funds for important causes. He encourages anyone who shares the same belief to take part in the upcoming Walk4Wellbeing, SignHealth’s virtual walk on 3rd July 2021.

“By joining Walk4Wellbeing, you can enjoy some exercise as well as raise awareness of the problems Deaf people face getting support for their mental health.”

As an experienced long-distance walker, James has also shared his top tips on how to prepare for a long-distance walk. Check them out here!
