World Mental Health Day 2016


World Mental Health Day 2016

We’ve done it!

We have been on ‘Our Adventures’, challenged ourselves, done something different, had fun, organised time together, laughed a lot, raised a lot of money and got people talking about mental health.

When we got back to the studio yesterday we realised that the one thing to unify us all, when we were out on ‘Our Adventures,’ was cake. Cake featured quite highly in keeping everybody motivated.

This is what we achieved on World Mental Health Day 2016:
