‘It’s okay not to be okay’ – that’s the message behind a local Instagram giveaway that has been set up to raise awareness of mental health following the loss of Isle of Wight man, Matt Law.
Will George Fitness, Inshape IOW and Kym’s Fitness have joined forces to give away £600 of prizes to spread the message far and wide that it really is okay not to be okay. It is hoped that the prize package will really help change someone’s whole life – both mentally and physically.
Matt Law was a keen gym enthusiast, but having battled with mental health problems he decided to take his own life whilst working at HMP Isle of Wight back in December. The news shook the local community.
The prize on offer, worth £600, includes 1 year’s gym membership at Inshape IOW, a block of 5 one-to-one personal training sessions with Kym’s Fitness and 6 months online coaching with Will George Fitness.
As well as giving away the bundle of prizes, the fitness companies are remembering Matt by encouraging locals and those further afield to post training photos/videos to motivate others. Islanders are being asked to use the hashtag #REPSFORMATT.
For a chance of winning the prize bundle, Instagram users should follow @inshapeiow, @kyms_fitness_iow and @willgeorgefitness, as well as liking this post and sharing/tag on your Insta story.
The winner will be announced on 21st January 2020.
