Story

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, so that the repaired pot becomes even more beautiful than the original – all because of its brokenness. Applying this metaphor to life, Kintsugi Hope exists to create safe and supportive spaces for anyone experiencing mental and emotional health challenges, finding new strength and great value in our scars.

 

On 23 September, me and a couple of friends will be pedalling our socks off for 100 miles (including some whopping inclines!) in the Velo South Sportif, in order to raise some money for this brilliant charity and the life-changing work they do. 1 in 4 of us are affected by mental health challenges, and every pound will make an enormous difference to someone who might otherwise feel totally alone. 

Thanks so much for your support!

I may live to regret this, but as a little inventive for you all; If I reach my target of £500 target before the 23rd September, then I will shave my legs for the event...! 

Chris



Kintsugi Hope

‘Kintsugi’ means golden joinery in Japanese and is a technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold.  When the brokenness is repaired the object becomes more beautiful and unique than it was before.  Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.

Founded in 2017 by Diane and Patrick Regan, Kintsugi Hope exists to create safe and supportive spaces for people suffering from mental and emotional health challenges through: 

Kintsugi Hope Groups – creating opportunities for people to share life, gain strength through friendship and learn how to grow and heal together.

Kintsugi Hope Talks – producing resources on subjects such as anger, shame, anxiety, perfectionism and depression.

Kintsugi Hope Projects – supporting people whose mental and emotional health has been affected by conflict, trauma and poverty.

Kintsugi Hope Advocacy – Working to elevate the debate on issues causing suffering with mental and emotional health, and pointing to solutions with long-term strategic change.
