Conlon Construction will be joining Community Rail Lancashire and Clitheroe Rugby Club in supporting this year’s Mental Elf campaign for Lancashire Mind.

The company will be sponsoring the event in which people are urged to cover a total distance of 2,005 miles, the equivalent of the distance between Lancashire and Lapland in order to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

Clitheroe Rugby Club meanwhile will be sponsoring the best dressed elf competition.

Fundraising manager Emma Bateson said: “Mental Elf is Lancashire Mind’s flagship fundraising event and is in its 6thyear.

"This is the first time the physical event has been replaced with a virtual challenge and we are really excited to have created something new whilst also retaining all the best bits of Mental Elf from previous years.

Lancashire businesses and organisations are always a key part of Mental Elf and we really appreciate their help and support, we couldn’t do it without them.”
