Britain is the loneliness capital of Europe.

Loneliness and social isolation are severely detrimental to our health, and increase the chance of developing longer-term health conditions such as depression, dementia and heart disease. Unfortunately, millions of people in the UK experience loneliness throughout their lifetime.

Carr Gomm are doing something about it.

Money fundraised for Carr Gomm goes directly towards their community projects and activities which are connecting people and tackling loneliness and isolation in communities across Scotland.

Their work has already had a significant impact, but they know there is so much more to do.

So they're hosting Team Carr Gomm 2020 to make an even bigger difference - and I've joined the team.

Team Carr Gomm are looking to raise £60,000 via a team of at least 100 people all doing something extraordinary, taking on a challenge, and breaking down barriers.

I have signed up to the Carr Gomm Kili Climb challenge to raise money and help Team Carr Gomm reach their fundraising target. Will you help me?
