I am taking some time away from the Mental Health SeeSaw to dedicate a page to a family that has been part of my life for a very long time and has been very good to me over the years. They not only have been a positive impact on me but they gave me a very special friend. One who i can’t fault and who has the ability to be positive and supportive no matter what life puts before him.
MICA travels are close to the Mental Health SeeSaw’s heart and will do what they can to support them in this journey where they will be carrying out a set of endurance challenges, such as climbing all the Wainwright fells in the lake district, (all 214 of them) and walking the Coast to Coast walk, (a stroll of some 200 miles from the North sea to the Irish sea.
Not just any Charity. But a group of people, Friends and Family dedicated to one cause. To support the AMMF and the UK Sepsis Trust In honour of a very special person. A mother, a wife, a sister and a good friend to all who knew her. Carol.
Please follow MICA Travels, who are one of the most amazing families and group of people I know and have been lucky enough to spend time with and get to know.
My heart, my support goes with them, wherever they go.

Every 3 seconds, someone in the world dies of sepsis. In the UK alone, 245,000 people are affected by sepsis with at least 48,000 people losing their lives in sepsis-related illness’ every year. This is more than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined. Globally, sepsis claims 11 million lives a year. Yet, for many patients, with early diagnosis it is easily treatable.
The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) exists to fight this life-threatening condition, stop preventable deaths and support those affected by sepsis.
