A big thank you to everyone who attended, especially our hosts, Malvern College and our speakers David Sculthorpe, from Mental Health UK, Rachel Roberts from Harrison Clarke Rickerbys, Sarah Angus from Malvern College  and Ian Smith of Bishop Fleming.

Gerry Crow from St Mary Stephen’s Hospice was one of the attendees. He said  “Even though I thanked you at the event this morning I just wanted to write to say thank you again for today. Everything seemed to be at just the right level; all the speakers were engaging and I left feeling that it was time extremely well spent. Please pass on my appreciation to everyone that took part in making it such a worthwhile experience.  I know my own perspective on mental health has changed dramatically over the last few years but also know there is still a lot more we all need to do; the seminar was just another piece of the very big puzzle. ”

The seminar was attended by around 70 local business people and we were delighted to welcome some of the Malvern College sixth form students during the morning. The raffle prizes had a sporting theme, thanks to generous donations of a signed Gloucester team rugby skirt from Gary Jones of Glevum Windows and tickets to watch Worcester Warriors. The raffle raised another £194 towards out total of £25,000.

If you missed the event, there is one more seminar coming up at Ross Park, Ross on Wye on Wednesday, 2nd October at 2pm until 5pm. To book your place email  and put Ross 2nd October in the email.
