“I felt really proud to run The London Marathon in my Mates in Mind running vest. I think the work you do is invaluable and is something I feel a real personal connection to.
When I started work as a young female site engineer I was very unusual and it made working life tough at times. To fit in I felt I had to behave like the men around me and not show any emotions even when things were difficult.
Anything we can do to make the industry more understanding and aware of mental health has got to be a good thing.”
Lynn Summerfield, British Land
