Norfolk footballing hero Cedric Anselin will tackle a new challenge as he takes on a tandem skydive in support of Norfolk and Waveney Mind.
Cedric, whose career included a stint in the Canaries’ midfield as well as managing Norwich United, will make the jump on World Mental Health Day, 10 October at UK Parachuting in Beccles.
He’ll be joined by a group of intrepid fundraisers leaping from 13,000 feet to raise money for the charity’s work supporting people affected by mental health issues across the county.
Cedric has spoken openly about his own mental health issues, including bouts of severe depression and an attempt to take his own life.
Cedric said: “There is a big stigma for men facing mental health issues so raising money to support a local charity like Norfolk and Waveney Mind is very important to me, to help keep their vital services going, especially during this time.”
Alex Haswell, Fundraising Manager at Norfolk and Waveney Mind said: “Cedric is a fantastic ambassador for mental health and we’re so pleased that he’s supporting us on World Mental Health Day.
“We’ve still got a couple of places left on the day so please do get in touch if you’d like to join our brave team!”
