We at Mind were devastated to learn of the tragic loss of Christian Smith, who died in a car collision in the early hours of Saturday, 22 March. Mr Smith, from Kent, died during a 24 hour, 248 mile solo cycling trip around Kent and Sussex to raise awareness of mental health problems, as well as vital funds for Mind.
Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, said:
"We were shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Christian Smith. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this extremely difficult time.
"Mind is grateful for the continued dedication of all our fundraisers, without whom we would not be able to support the hundreds of thousands of people affected by mental health problems across England and Wales."
