THIS YEAR’S fun run and walk in support of mental health charity Mind Your Head will take place in Cunningsburgh on Sunday 26 August.

The annual event usually sees in excess of 500 people taking part and it regularly raises thousands of pounds for the charity.

This year the event is sponsored by local civil engineering company Tulloch Developments.

Directors Frank Tulloch and George Smith said they were keen to raise the awareness of mental health issues and be open about it.

“We have like so many others in Shetland have had family members who have struggled with their mental health and this made sponsoring the fun run seem more worthwhile. It’s a good way to raise awareness of mental health,” they said.

Mind Your Head project manager Anouska Civico added that the aim of the day is to get as many people together from all communities and walks of life to promote and raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental ill-health.

Online registration for the event will open on Friday until 1 August. Pre-registration is recommended if you want to ensure you get one of the run’s infamous t-shirts.

Registration will also take place on the day between 12.30pm-1.45pm with the run starting at 2pm. The entry fee will be £13, with children under the age of 12 free. More information is available at:

Sunday teas will be served on the day in the hall from 2pm onwards.
