The Story

Today is World Mental Health Day. It also marks the first day of The Cart Shed’s week-long fundraising campaign the Big Sleep. We are asking our supporters to: • Wear an item of nightwear to raise the profile of mental health • Use the opportunity to encourage people to talk about mental health and how it impacts them • Raise funds for The Cart Shed via Kindlink As the organisation’s CEO I will be wearing some item of nightwear throughout the week… Monday: In the office with my dressing gown on and walking my dog Florence Tuesday: The Biggy! I will be accompanying Bill Jackson (Jackson Properties) around Hereford. We will both be wearing our pyjamas. I will then go to a meeting with leaders to discuss new ways of resourcing funding for Herefordshire, followed by a gathering to discuss vulnerability. Wednesday: A Healthwatch seminar at The Kindle Centre followed by Landau’s celebration event at The Green Dragon in my dressing gown Thursday: I’ll be in Leominster again wearing my dressing gown Friday: My dressing gown and I hope to attend the opening of Herefordshire MIND’s Art exhibition at de Koffee Pot. Saturday: I have a flu jab at our local surgery – a great place to encourage conversation by wearing my nightwear Sunday: I will be attending 10am Communion in Hereford Cathedral on my final nightwear wearing excursion. Please support me if you can, by donating or sharing this post. Thank you.
