It is great to have your support and we look forward to helping you raise as much money as possible and get ready for this incredible challenge.
You have been invited to join our private Facebook group for the trek.
To help make your membership of the group both enjoyable and beneficial we have a few house rules and ask that you spend a few moments reading these and putting them into practise throughout your time as a group member.
By joining the group, or remaining a group member, you’re deemed to be in agreement with these rules. If you've got any questions or comments, drop us an email at [email protected] and we'll do our best to help.
This group has been set up as a ‘Closed Group’ which is defined within Facebook guidelines as ‘Closed Group – anyone can find the group and see who’s in it. Only members can see posts.’ Members can request to join the group; Mind will only approve membership of people who are registered to take part in the Machu Picchu Trek for Mind in 2019; and only members are then able to view posts and add comments.
This group could have up to 12 people and therefore it may be you know other members from your own personal and/or professional networks and you should be aware that they will be able to view anything you choose to share here.
This group is intended as a space for Mind supporters to share their experiences about fundraising for Mind including ideas for fundraising and training.
It's great to share experiences and ideas but this space isn't designed to facilitate ongoing mental health support.
We know that online community support can be really valuable and Mind has another online community called Elefriends – elefriends.org.uk. It's a space for members to be open about their mental health and they're all very supportive of each other. It's also moderated around the clock if you feel you need support throughout the night.
Mind are responsible for administration of this group and we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of each member within the limits of our monitoring periods.
As the purpose of this group is to support you during your training and fundraising for the Mind Machu Picchu trek team, the group will be closed three months after the trek has taken place. You will be notified about this closure date at least four weeks in advance.
