A CYCLE ride raising awareness for mental health was such a big success that it is returning this week.

Staff from Hampshire NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) will be aiming to cycle 145 miles, a mile for every young life ended by suicide each year.

When the last event was held in April at Fareham Shopping Centre, the staff surpassed the 145 miles by cycling 200 miles.

They spoke to more than 100 young people about mental health. It is due to this success that it is happening again this Friday.

Hampshire CAMHS will be completing the event in Totton precinct on Friday between 9.15am and 3pm.
