My name is Ashleigh Coyle & I'm 21 years old. I am representing my home city at the Miss International UK finals as Miss Derry International with the hope of going to the world finals in Tokyo, competing against countries from all over the world.

After suffering with my own mental health issues & focusing on coping methods, I have decided to use this year to push for awareness regarding the importance of looking after your mental health.

I have decided to raise money in aid of Me4Mental (a new organisation working solely with the people of Derry and looking after their mental health) & Aurora Counselling (an amazing service that has helped me personally deal with my own issues).

As for my fundraiser, I have decided to organise a group of people to climb Mount Errigal (highest mountain in Donegal - which for me personally will be quite the challenge considering I can just about make it down the High Street lol!) & hit a target of £1000 between us all. My own personal target I have set myself is £250 with the intentions of smashing both of these with the support of everyone else.

With recent unfortunate events happening within my own city, there is quite clearly help needed & we are working to reduce the numbers of suicides & of course the number of people who feel they are alone.

I call upon the public to support me through this event #ClimbForHope to be able to support the incredible work that these organisations are trying to complete for the local people of our city.

Me4Mental are currently trying to fund a 24 hour house for distressed individuals to have a place to go at anytime & this is something I have personally supported for a long time and will be helping them with.

The compassion of the people from outside Derry, spreading into foreign countries also, is & will be extremely appreciated & the volunteers from Me4Mental are filled with gratitude for your support to help reduce the numbers of suicide within our local community with Derry having the highest ratio of suicide in Europe & of course raise awareness regarding mental health. 

P.S thanks for taking the time to read this & if anyone has any questions or would benefit from help from either of these services - please don't hesitate to contact myself or them via Facebook!
