Scores of staff, service-users and friends of CPFT took part in the first Mind Your Body event to mark World Mental Health Day.

Over 170 people walked or ran their way along the 3km, 5km and 10km courses at Grafham Water last Saturday, 11 October.

Andréa Grosbois, Communications Manager at CPFT, said: "We were delighted that so many people turned up to support our Mind Your Body event; it was a fantastic day and the sun didn't stop shining.

"The event raised lots of money for our charity and helped to break down some of the stigma that still unfortunately surrounds mental health. On the day you couldn't tell who were staff, service users or public. Everyone joined together to raise awareness, which was the aim of the day.

"We would like to thank everyone who took part or helped out on the day for helping to create such a fantastic atmosphere."

CPFT organised the event which was kindly sponsored by Serco, Kelway and G4S.

Money raised for the CPFT Charitable Trust will be split between the Croft Child and Family Unit and the Recovery College East once it is all collected.
