Gentleman Crafter goes on the road to raise funds for Mind Charity

John Bloodworth, also known as ‘Gentleman Crafter’, will be setting off on Monday 25th April on a one-man tour of all 92 historic UK counties, crafting with communities along the way in a bid to raise £20,000 in aid of Mind, a UK-based registered mental health charity.

Sponsored by Create and Craft TV, John will live and travel in a motorhome, visiting craft groups, organising workshops and sharing his crafting knowledge, all while promoting Mind.

John (42) has suffered periods of severe depression and anxiety disorder in his life and has found Mind to be a valuable resource in understanding his condition and finding ways to move forward in life.

He said: “A year ago I hit rock-bottom and suffered an extended period where my mental health difficulties began emerging as physical symptoms such as shaking, sweating and being short of breath.”

“Fortunately, I discovered the Mind website and was able to identify why this might be happening and different ways in which I could tackle these issues. I went to my doctor and, after a discussion about the options available, we agreed on a course of action. I was initially prescribed medication which would have the benefit of reducing my overall distress and thereby provide the space in which to seek further support from local talking therapy services. My recovery was then monitored by my GP who recommended adjustments as time progressed.”

Over a period of time, John reached a point where he could look back and understand what had happened to him… and now he wants to reach out and help others.

    I wonder if the tube is the hand serum and the boxed one is the neck and bust cream, might go for this as it has got the full size tonic and moisturiser.

    I was just thinking the same, bang goes my new year's resolution, I fancy this, but is the moisturiser definitely a full size? Would like to give the hand serum a go as well, and nice to see a full size IBST in it

    It looks like the moisturizer is full size.
