How you can support us!

Tim will be walking unsupported, carrying only what he will need for the 3 week journey, but will be joined by some special guests along the way to look back on and discuss Black Isle Group’s work over the past 20 years, the changes to our industry, and other topical leadership issues.

Every year numerous people from all walks of life face the reality of living with mental illness. As well as raising money for the BIG Foundation, during the BIG Walk we want to raise awareness of mental health. We aim to fight the stigma, help to educate others and advocate for those people with mental illness and their families. We will hear the stories of those who have personally experienced mental illness, and the dedicated professionals who give care to those affected.

We are asking friends, colleagues and clients to help us reach our target, by:

Meet Tim

Tim Richardson, our Founder, will lead the fundraising effort and walk over 20 kilometres each day, for 20 days in May. In the South of England – the 178km route starts in Wiltshire on The White Horse Way, before joining the Ridgeway Path through Hertsfordshire and Oxfordshire. Moving up to Scotland, Tim will restart the walk in Glasgow and walk 290km along the West Highland Way to Fort William and then climb Ben Nevis, before continuing along the Great Glen to Inverness. He will take in some of the finest scenery in both England and Scotland, before completing the walk on the Black Isle near Inverness on 25th May.
